From the Sundance catalog: “Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. It’s clear the mainstream media objectifies women, but what most people don’t realize is the magnitude of that phenomenon and the way objectification gets internalized—a symbolic annihilation of self-worth—and impedes girls and women from realizing their full potential.” In this brief interview, the film’s director, Jennifer Siebel Newsom and Geena Davis talk about the film and Sundance.
