For over 20 years, Gina Prince-Bythewood has been writing and directing dynamic stories that have elevated representation and redefined what female characters look like on screen. Join us for an intimate conversation as we trace the evolution of a filmmaker, from making her debut feature film, LOVE & BASKETBALL, to directing her newest work, THE OLD GUARD. Comparing and contrasting these films, we’ll discuss how she approaches writing rich, diverse characters; explore her process for directing memorable scenes; and examine how she builds collaborative relationships. We’ll gain insight into where Gina started and how she has evolved as an artist--diving into challenges, choices made, and lessons learned that will inspire and educate the next wave of emerging storytellers.
