In the last 100 years, Hollywood has emerged as one of the most influential forces in shaping our society’s perception and expectations of women and girls in everyday life. What comes out of Hollywood reaches the entire world. Who is creating these stories, and how does this shape the on-screen portrayal of women? It all begins with the storytellers. Told first-hand by some of the industry’s leading voices, including executive producer Geena Davis, living legends like Meryl Streep, and younger talents such as Yara Shahidi and Chloë Grace Moretz, ”This Changes Everything” is a feature documentary that uncovers what is behind one of the most confounding dilemmas in the entertainment industry - the under-representation and misrepresentation of women.
It takes an incisive look behind and in front of the camera, into the historical and empirical evidence, and systemic forces that foster gender discrimination and reinforce disparities in our culture. Backed by hundreds of stories and overwhelming data, director Tom Donahue illuminates and unpacks an inherently misogynistic Hollywood machine. The film is a call for change and accountability, seeking and proposing solutions from inside Hollywood and around the world.
