"1. February is ‘Women In Horror’ Recognition Month. Who are your favorite female film directors?
Sylvia: Mary Harron is the reason why I went into directing, she’s phenomenal. Alice Guy-Blache pioneered early cinema and the industry wouldn’t be what it is today without her contributions. Dorothy Arzner is hugely inspirational as the only female director during Hollywood’s golden age. I’m a big Punisher fan and loved Lexi Alexander’s vision and she’s got real balls, I really admire her. I’m really looking forward to Tammi Sutton’s Isle of Dogs this year! Also, Kathryn Bigelow is brilliant.Read the entire interview here!
Jen: That’s tough. There are so many women that inspire us and our work. Jennifer Chambers Lynch is amazing. I love her body horror. She’s so unique and original. BOXING HELENA is one of our favorite films. I am so honored to be working with her and Mary Harron, Jovanka Vuckovic, and Karyn Kusama on XX. We also had the amazing opportunity to work with a collection of phenomenal female filmmakers for this year’s WiHM Massive Blood Drive. Maude Michaud, Patricia Chica, Isabel Peppard, Jessica Cameron, and WiHM founder herself, Hannah Neurotica."
