"I have to remind you that women have been making movies for decades, and there are hundreds of films that women make, so why don't we think we should know?" 」
"We have the recently deceased film master Kira Muratova, whose obituaries are only so thin and only appear in national newspapers, but any male master director who dies, everyone will rush to the book to commemorate the special. There are too many female filmmakers who work in bars, are still in college, or even have no way to read movies, and we want to change that. 」
"We're going to record the status quo, we're going to pay for their movie tickets, not pretend ingress these things are far away, we just "occasionally find out." 」
