Quote of the Day: Ava DuVernay Urges Intersectional Approach to Protecting Women in Hollywood

7 hours ago | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

DuVernay: Democracy Now!/YouTube

Like Kathleen Kennedy and Reese Witherspoon, Ava DuVernay used her appearance at Elle’s recent Women in Hollywood Event to discuss Hollywood’s misogyny in light of the revelations about serial predator Harvey Weinstein. As she introduced event honoree Tessa Thompson (“Selma,” “Westworld”), DuVernay took a moment to stress that all women need to be protected from the sexual harassment and abuse that runs rampant in the industry — including women of color and those who identify as Lgbtq.

“I bring up color in regards to Tessa because it is important. Her identity in this industry isn’t only woman, it is one of color,” DuVernay observed in her speech. “This invites a particular gaze, a particular way of being seen, a particular way of seeing yourself.”

As DuVernay pointed out, non-white and queer women in Hollywood face that ever-present double bind: their race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation makes them a target, as does their gender. “For…women like me and many others, that protection of our womenhood isn’t enough, because we’re not only women. We’re black. We’re brown. We are native. We are Asian. We are Muslim. We are queer. We are many things that deserve safe spaces and protection,” she explained.

If Hollywood will ever truly change its treatment of women, it will need a united, intersectional push. “We can take this moment and enter in with focus. Harvey, sexual harassment, all of that’s deserving of our focus and attention,” DuVernay said. “But, we come in here with focus and ferocity and fever, with an intention that says, until all women are safe, until we take an intersectional approach to safeguard within this industry, that we are not truly living up to the movement.”

Finally, DuVernay warned of prioritizing any “-ism” over another in the fight to reform the film industry. “We don’t have time to work on these -isms one by one,” she condluded. “Triggered by trauma and outrage, we should be outraged by all of it all of the time. Until we are all safe, no one is safe.”

DuVernay is a writer, director, producer, the founder of film collective Array, and the first woman of color to helm a $100 million feature. The Oscar-nominated doc “13th,” “Selma,” “Middle of Nowhere,” “I Will Follow,” “Scandal,” and the highly-anticipated “A Wrinkle in Time” are among her directing credits. DuVernay created the Own family drama “Queen Sugar” with Oprah Winfrey. It is currently in its second season. She’s also working on a Netflix miniseries about the Central Park Five and a TV adaptation of Octavia Butler’s “Dawn.”

You can read DuVernay’s entire Women in Hollywood Event speech over at Elle.

The film follows the young Han Solo — a 20-something version of Harrison Ford’s character — and Chewbacca’s adventures before joining the Rebellion, including their encounters with Lando Calrissian.

Howard took over as director in August after the movie’s original helmers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, were fired, after clashing with Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and co-writer/executive producer Lawrence Kasdan.

“It was a culture clash from day one,” a source told Variety at the time. “She didn’t »

16 October 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Two words are showing victims of sexual assault and harassment that the problem is much larger than many imagine: “me too.”

The phrase began trending on Twitter after Alyssa Milano took to the social media site on Sunday with an idea she said was suggested by a friend.

“If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘Me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem,” wrote the actress, who starred on Charmed with Rose McGowan, one of the numerous women who recently accused producer Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing or assaulting her. »

‘M.F.A.’ Review – Masters the Art of Making a Star

12 October 2017 10:45 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

M.F.A. touches a very sensitive subject. And the timing of the release comes at a time where rape and sexual assualt is now making the headlines in Hollywood more than ever. It’s a subject that needs to be talked about more and an act that should never have to be committed against anyone. To any victims out there, we sympathize with you. This film is a film that fantasizes on the consequences of those horrific actions. Aside from that, a star is born in the process.

M.F.A. is a powerful thriller about a young woman forced to take action to protect herself. Noelle (Francesca Eastwood, Final Girl, Outlaws and Angels), an art student struggling to find her voice, is sexually assaulted by a fellow classmate. Attempting to cope with her trauma, she impulsively confronts her attacker, leading to a violent altercation that culminates in his accidental death. Noelle tries to return to normalcy, »

‘Westworld’ Star Evan Rachel Wood Speaks Out on Sexual Assault: ‘It’s a Global Epidemic’ — Watch

11 October 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

During the first season of the HBO drama “Westworld,” we watched the artificially created Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) struggle to escape a system of oppression — but in the real world, that struggle is just as real.

Wood, who has always been a vocal proponent of equal rights, posted a video to YouTube Wednesday discussing the reasons why women are often reluctant to tell their stories of sexual assault.

For nearly 15 minutes, Wood speaks candidly on what it means for women to come forward with the truth. While there’s been a massive rise in women making public statements about the toxic culture within Hollywood that has enabled men like Harvey Weinstein to perpetrate abuse, as Wood notes speaking out is not an easy thing to do.

Wood admits that she has not publicly named the men who assaulted her in the past because of the financial and emotional toll she knows it will cause her. »

Bob Weinstein Condemns Brother Harvey Over Rape Allegations: ‘He’s A Very Sick Man’ and ‘A World Class Liar’

11 October 2017 5:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Celebrities aren’t the only ones speaking out against Harvey Weinstein. Bob Weinstein, Harvey’s brother and the co-founder of Miramax and The Weinstein Company, is condemning his sibling’s alleged history of sexual harassment in new statements given exclusively to TMZ. Harvey has been the subject of bombshell reports from The New York Times and The New Yorker in which dozens of women have come forward alleging the studio executive of sexual harassment. Three women, including Asia Agrento, claim Harvey raped them.

“My brother Harvey is obviously a very sick man,” Bob said. “I’ve urged him to seek immediate professional help because he is in dire need of it. His remorse and apologies to the victims of his abuse are hollow. He said he would go away for help and has yet to do so.”

Westworld Season 2: Violence, Chaos, and 3 New Theme Parks

11 October 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Season one of Westworld ended with a bang (well, a ton of bangs), and season two is on the way. But how do you continue a show that ends its first season with such upheaval? A few major twists were revealed in the supersize finale, opening the door for lots of possibilities for season two - though unfortunately not for Ford, Rip. Here's what we know about season two so far; stay tuned for more! The Episode Count "I know we're doing a second season," Ed Harris told Entertainment Weekly. "[Showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy say] we're doing 10 episodes. Probably won't start shooting until June or July. They sound pretty excited about what it's about. But I have no idea what it will encompass." Brace Yourself For Bloodshed When asked to speculate about what could happen, Harris added that, "I don't know, but it sure seems like there's going to be an awful lot of violence. »

Disney and Lucasfilm debated the fate of Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

8 October 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having pushed for it during the production of 1983’s Return of the Jedi, Harrison Ford finally got his wish to see Han Solo killed off when he returned to the Star Wars Saga for 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It was certainly a bold move from Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams to dispense with one of the franchises’ most iconic characters – and it seems there was some internal discussions with Disney as to whether or not it was necessary to have Han die.

“We had a big debate about Han Solo,” Disney CEO Bob Iger told Vanity Fair. “Should he die or not? It was a decision made by Kennedy and Abrams, but I got involved.”

Despite Han’s death in The Force Awakens, we will of course be seeing the character back on the big screen next year, albeit as a younger version, as Alden Ehrenreich steps into »
