As it stands, the DGA offers no form of leave for women in the lead-up and following child birth. In order to retain benefits, all members must reach a yearly minimum. Women, being underrepresented in this field, are already at a disadvantage towards reaching these minimums. To state the obvious, directing is a rigorous, intensive endeavor, often taking place away from home. Pregnant women are not allowed to travel until their final trimester, putting them at a disadvantage from the start. Add to this the stigma of applying for directing jobs while visibly pregnant. Subsequently, women are penalized for having children in a way that their male counterparts are not. Failure to meet yearly minimums introduces economic and health care insecurity when it could be argued that it is needed most. And, importantly, a lack of maternity leave will continue to be an obstacle in achieving parity in the field of directing unless corrected. It is imperative that in this moment of such positive gains … [Read more...] about Female Directors Ramp Up Call For DGA To Improve Benefits For Moms And Families
There’s a lot to unpack there, but Ryan is acting cowardly, which is unsurprising. Rather than push for real change, the Speaker is known to instead opt for mere symbolism. He doesn’t advocate for closing the gender pay gap, nor does he follow the lead of his mentor Jack Kemp in pushing his party to produce policies that remedy racial discrimination in housing, education or public works. Even now, at the end of his Congressional tenure, Ryan is more comfortable laying the blame for poverty and economic stagnation at the feet of those advocating for those disproportionately hurt by ideas like his own. Ryan is following a familiar Republican script: use identity politics as a scapegoat while employing them himself, putting forth a platform of built-in advantages for the only true GOP constituency, wealthy white men. Ryan and conservatives like him enjoy moving the goal posts in this debate, and their effort to delete identity from either the cause or the effect of their own … [Read more...] about Paul Ryan Loves Identity Politics, Despite What Paul Ryan Says
This lackluster boom at the box office has made one thing very clear. Twenty minutes of footage can become the hottest ticket in town. That's what happened with Star Trek. I, like every journalist in the Los Angeles area, headed down to Paramount Pictures Studios to watch a few nuggets from this supposedly anticipated sci fi reimagining last Wednesday. The enormous theater was packed, and the buzz was over bearing. It was a strange mix of industry types and shitty blog critics, but the feeling in the air was palpable. The anticipation level was a few degrees higher than that felt in the advanced screening room for Twilight. And we weren't even seeing the whole film. Thus far, every single source of on-line information has chimed in with their two cents. Some accounts have been dripping with substantial prose, and offer an insightful bird's eye view on what you missed. Other, lesser sites have piped in screaming missives in bold type like, "Outstanding! Unbelievably incredible! More … [Read more...] about BOOS! and WHOOP-DOOS!: Star Trek Vs. Thanksgiving!
In this sense, Ly and Bong tap into very similar material. The action in Parasite is almost exclusively set in two homes; one only half above ground and the other towering over others on a hill (no points for guessing where the rich live). But the two homes and the families that live in them make up a microcosm in which the exploitation of the poor by the rich leads to a desire on the part of the poor to outdo the rich at their own game. This isn't even a particularly South Korean situation, as largely uncontrolled globalism experiments have led to enormous inequality in France and elsewhere around the world. In Parasite, there isn't a cub on the loose that should have been kept caged, but other ills lurking in the dark act as pointed metaphors for often-invisible experiences of exploitation and injustice. Ly's film is angrier and more immediate, while Bong masterfully uses genre codes to serve up a story about the ugly world we live in with nuance and finesse — before things … [Read more...] about Oscars: Class Warfare and Culture Clashes Fuel International Feature Film Race
