"It’s great to see all the attention this year on women filmmakers, seeing so much support there for, but I would hate to think that it’s something that people will move on from because it needs to be a concerted effort over a long period of time. What I’ve found really interesting is women filmmakers supporting each other, and talking to each other, and coming together to try and make sure that it continues on—that it’s something that, through the decades, will continue on. Half of the stories in this world need to be told by women, because we’re half of this world." - Director Nora Twomey

In this insightful AWARDSDAILY.COM article, Director Nora Twomey walks us through her process specific to the scene when Parvana cuts her hair to disguise herself as a boy: "This whole sequence is about seeing what the character is thinking. She looks at her sister, her mother and her brother and you understand that she’s going to make a decision. It’s a decision that she is going to put herself in great danger, she’s taking on this great responsibility and the health of her entire family is on her shoulders. It’s the moment she stops being a child and becomes the adult of the family."
