Reflecting on: Susan Sontag’s thoughts on stereotypes and their negative impact on culture, highlighted this week by Maria Popova on Brain Pickings.

Surprised but satisfied by: the inclusion of five women in Variety’s annual 10 Directors to Watch list. I’m not the only one!

Taking the opportunity: to look back at the history of female animators at Disney, in light of Frozen’s box office success. The feature marks the first female directorial credit from Disney Animation (Jennifer Lee), but women have played key roles in the studio’s history since its early years.

Terry Lawler is NYWIFT’s Executive Director. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks of the week.
