In “Seeing Is Believing: Women Direct,” four diverse women share the story of how they became directors, what motivates them, how they lead, and how they overcome obstacles to create the most optimal working environment and work that makes a difference.

They provide a mix of honest, direct, and optimistic perspectives into what it takes to become a director, and what it will take to ensure more women are given the opportunity to work at the highest levels of the film industry.

Bolstered by additional insights provided by Hollywood directors, the film shows how collaboration, rather than oppression, can incentivize all genders to connect across our shared human experience.
