  3. Seeing Is Believing – Women Direct with Q & A

    Cady McClain / USA / 2017 / Documentary Feature Film / 57 mins
    Seeing is Believing: Women Direct is a documentary about directors, leaders…who happen to be women. There is nothing worse than to discover your calling only to find out that society doesn’t think you should be doing it because you are a woman. The statistics tell a story of this mindset. A mindset that seems ingrained into many men, and shockingly, women. Director McClain decided that the best way to help change that mindset, was to show working directors of ALL ranges of experience. Working women who are forging their path despite the statistics.
