The film industry has always been male-oriented, in fact, there are a lot of talented women, let us take a look at these outstanding female directors!
First Oscar best Female director Catherine Bigelow
You may not recognize her name, but you won't forget that she was the first woman to get the best Director Oscar.
Catherine Bigelow, in 2010, "The countdown to the crisis" (The Hurt Locker), became the first female director to win the Academy Award for Best Director.
Catherine Rose for nearly 15 years, but she had been filming in the 80 's, unlike other female directors who tended to love sex, her work was mostly in action, war type, Catherine said: "I do not like violence, but I have to admit that I am very interested in violence." Violence is a part of the society that surrounds our lives. "Catherine's films, though seemingly violent, have other very many ingredients, about love, hope and redemption." (from the female photographer's perspective War:"1000 times Goodnight" to defend the female heroes of Justice )
"I do not condone violence, I think the film is a kind of warning, sounded a meaningful alarm." 」
"The countdown to the crisis" (The Hurt Locker) film title, quoted by The New York Times journalist Chris. Hedges (Chris Hedges) wrote: "The impact of combat is an addiction, a potent and lethal!" Because war is a kind of drug (the rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for the war is a drug). "Unlike many anti-war films, the concept of drug addiction is used to explain the life and death of the battlefield, allowing viewers to have a new vision and thinking about war."
After the countdown to the crisis, Catherine continued to direct the early 00:30 order, recounting the laden incident in the United States. She said it was a profound moral film, questioning the use of force and questioning everything that had been done in the name of "looking for Osama bin Laden." (Extended reading: when government violence is happening, can you stand still?) )
Catherine believes that movies are a great opportunity to comment on the world we live in. "This is a war that cannot be won," Catherine, with film, with the only medium she has, the only opportunity to care about her concerns.
"If a woman has any restrictions on making a movie, I will ignore it for two reasons: I can't change my sex, I refuse to stop filming." 」
Catherine said that the gender is not important, it is important to be responsible for herself, she believes that there is no difference between her and the male director, is to do their best to perform to achieve the goal, try to make one another good movie. Still, she said it was clear that women's journeys were particularly remote in any field, and she wanted more women to direct the tube and create more good movies with their own ideas.

We will certainly think she will become very good, but did not, she still lived a simple life, for her work, always find faults, their own films to grumble.
She is not rich, because her films are more literary, so often difficult to find investors, others are afraid of investment failure. So, her plan for filming might have taken one out of five, and to her experience, it wouldn't be too hard to raise money if it was a commercial film, but she was trying to put herself in a state of failure, and she was afraid of being obsessed with ease.
She thinks in the failure, only then will have the desire diligently, will not stop the footsteps, only then can the method more earnestly continue the filming, lets the film one be perfect. Only the body in the failure, can humbly accept opinions, always keep a humble not proud heart. (Recommended you see: fly over the higher the more humble?) A philosophy of life that does not go to space.
"With a perfect system and flexibility, Hong Kong cinema will become better and more good." 」
There are many types of films made by director Xu-Hua, including: Literary adaptation, semi-autobiographical, female issues, social phenomena, political changes, etc., are her concern, worthy of discussion of the phenomenon or issues, as a member of the New Wave of Hong Kong film, the Hong Kong film brings many new inspiration.

Life is worth sticking to if no one else gives you reason. --"Sister Peach"
