  1. Jill Soloway on The Female Gaze | MASTER CLASS | TIFF 2016

    In this keynote address, Jill Soloway takes on the critical feminist concept of the female gaze and asks what it would take to bring it the forefront of film, art, and culture. By making space for women to take the lead in shaping female protagonism, can we get one step closer to igniting a revolution to overthrow the patriarchy?

    Jill Soloway was born in Chicago. She is a writer, producer, and director. Her directorial work includes the short Una Hora Por Favora (12) and the feature Afternoon Delight (13). Her television series Transparent (14— ), has won two Golden Globes and five Emmys, including one for directing.

    Cameron Russell admits she won "a genetic lottery": she’s tall, pretty and an underwear model. But don’t judge her by her looks.

  3. Pitchfork Critic Jessica Hopper on ESPN’s Rembert Explains

    This week Rembert Browne invites Pitchfork senior editor Jessica Hopper onto the podcast to talk about her upcoming book The First Collection Of Criticism By A Living Female Rock Critic. This proves to be an excellent jumping off point for several conversations, none more so than that of Hopper’s coverage of R. Kelly’s long, turbid history of sexual conduct with minors. The story amounts not just to a harrowing tale of the lives that his actions affected, it, on a larger scale, acts a further indictment against the willful cultural blindness paid to celebrities who have attained a certain intractable fame

  5. The 2014 Pultizer Prizes: MAKING UP FOR A SEXIST PAST? (Studio 360)

    The winners of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize were announced this week, acknowledging the best in journalism as well as the arts. Donna Tartt won the prize for fiction for her third novel, The Goldfinch. The 784-page bestseller, which took Tartt eleven years to finish, is a Dickensian tale of a teenage boy orphaned when he’s caught in a terrorist bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “Often the Pulitzer doesn’t go necessarily to the most popular book of the year,” says critic Rachel Syme, “but The Goldfinch seemed like the novel of the year.” Kurt Andersen points out books of epic length and scope were a trend this year: a finalist for the award, Philipp Meyer’s The Son, is a multigenerational saga of Texas from the days of Comanche.
