Although at times the film industry refuses to give women their place, there are some who have managed to break through the glass ceiling, and go from being in front of the cameras to being behind them.
The entertainment industry doesn’t usually save a lot of space for women, in film especially, behind-the-scenes production positions don’t feature many female names, and this has been a fight that actresses like Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Salma Hayek, Emma Watson, among others have been arguing for several years, along with movements like #MeToo.
There are some lucky ones who have managed to go from being the face in front of the camera to lending their vision to new stories, Greta Gerwig is the one who has moved the most between the best of two worlds, and right now she is giving a lot to talk about directing Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in Mattel’s World’s Most Famous Doll. Find out who else has joined her:
Oscar winner, heroine of Marvel Studios and also director of Netflix with the film Unicorn Store.
Kristen has positioned herself very well in her acting career. Stewart’s first film is a short film called Come Swim which screened at Cannes in 2017.
Natalie Portman is one of the great defenders of gender inclusion in the industry. In 2015 she directed A Tale of Love and Darkness, which deals with the early years of the State of Israel, and a young man’s relationship with her mother.
Taylor Swift is the music industry, but she has also participated as an actress in one or another production, and today she directs her own videos, as well as the short All Too Well.
She is known for playing the role of Gabrielle Solís in the television series Desperate Housewives, and is now making her directorial debut with Flamin’ Hot.
