When we think of pop culture, and commercial cinema with mainstream stars, we can see that women are almost always portrayed in certain pre-constructed ways - they look a certain way, belong to a certain age bracket or social location. Very rarely do we see women both in terms or actors as well as characters who are removed from these moulds.
Slowly but surely however, some filmmakers are paving the way for far more realistic portrayals of women on screen - joining our hosts in this episode of our podcast is one such filmmaker - Alankrita Srivastava. Tune in to this episode to hear more about the difference women telling their own stories makes to the narrative of a film, how we need to stop judging women on screen and much more!
