50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present and Future of Women + Power
In the new “Shatterbox Anthology” film “50/50,” Emmy-nominated filmmaker and Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain tells the true history of powerful women. Women have been told the story of scarcity for so long. It’s time to tell a new story of abundance. 5050 unravels the past, present, and future of women’s relationship with power. Emmy-nominated director, Tiffany Shlain (@tiffanyshlain) narrates the history lesson your textbooks left out, since they were written by men!
Women accounted for only 13% of the directors on the 700 top grossing films in 2014 — and only 7% of the top 250 films. Refinery29 wants to change this by giving 12 female directors a chance to claim their power. Their message to Hollywood? You can’t win without women. Welcome to Shatterbox Anthology.
