What role does Hollywood play in gatekeeping which stories get told on screen?
Writers and filmmakers discuss that and more in an episode of Academy Dialogues, a series of virtual panels featuring conversations between some of the entertainment industry's most vital voices.
In this conversation you'll hear from writers Misan Sagay (Belle) and Ligiah Villalobos (Under the Same Moon) as well as filmmakers Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open) and Lulu Wang (The Farewell).
The Focus will be sharing some of the Academy Dialogues panels to foster conversations around diversity and inclusion within the visual effects industry.
