THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

by Tom Donahue

Told first-hand by some of the industry’s leading voices, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is a feature documentary that uncovers what is behind one of the most confounding dilemmas in the entertainment industry -- the under-representation and misrepresentation of women.

Synopsis

The Geske Cinema Showcase, sponsored by the Friends of The Ross, presents Tom Donahue who will be appearing at a 7:30 p.m. screening of his movie on Friday, September 13 to participate in a Q+A with the audience.

In the last 100 years, Hollywood has emerged as one of the most influential forces in shaping our society’s perceptions and expectations of women and girls in everyday life. As our country’s largest export, what comes out of Hollywood reaches the entire world. Who is creating these stories, and how does this shape the on-screen portrayal of women? It all begins with the storytellers. Told first-hand by some of the industry’s leading voices, including Executive Producer Geena Davis, living legends like Meryl Streep, and younger talent such as Yara Shahidi and Chloe Moretz, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is a feature documentary that uncovers what is behind one of the most confounding dilemmas in the entertainment industry -- the under-representation and misrepresentation of women. It takes an incisive look behind and in front of the camera, into the historical and empirical evidence, and systemic forces that foster gender discrimination and reinforce disparities in our culture.  Backed by hundreds of stories and overwhelming data, director Tom Donahue illuminates and unpacks an inherently misogynistic Hollywood machine. The film is a call for change and accountability, seeking and proposing solutions from inside Hollywood and around the world.
