Story background

With years of studio and independent production experience under their belts, director Ashley Maria and her female colleagues started to notice they couldn’t shake the experiences of consistently being turned down for jobs, and looked at as inexperienced “woman-directors.”

So, Ashley decided to do something about it. She picked up her camera to share her story; revealing the career obstacles she and many other women still have to deal with today.
