18July13: The FF2 Week in Review by Jan Lisa Huttner

From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)

Five films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:

  • Dark Money
  • The Devil’s Doorway
  • Gaguin: Voyage to Tahiti
  • Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind
  • What Will People Say

Of these five, so far I seen four. Two — Dark Money and Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind — are docs. Two — Gauguin and What Will People Say –i are narrative features.

My Top Pick for July 13th (drumroll please!) is What Will People Say, Iram Haq’s incisive drama about a teenager caught between two cultures — the restrictions of Pakistan (from which her parents emigrated) and the freedoms of Norway (the country in which she has been raised).
