Join us for a dynamic conversation with four renowned women filmmakers and cultural producers from Latin America and the Caribbean. They will discuss the technologies and methods they have used to communicate their ideas cinematically and overcome challenges for women in a male-dominated industry. Learn about the artistic, intellectual, and commercial strategies they have employed to bring social issues to film and disseminate their work nationally and internationally.
