Lucy Cohen: ‘Putting up with mistreatment helps no one, not those around you or those after you’
Documentary filmmaker Lucy Cohen kicks off our Women Who Win series, giving us some insight into how tough you have to be to hack it out in the film industry as a woman...
The mistreatment of women has been brought to light in the past year – especially in the entertainment industry. And while the focus has predominantly centred around the abuse of Hollywood actresses, attention has shifted in recent months to shine a light on the lack of recognition for female directors.
‘Here are the all-male nominees’ announced Natalie Portman at the 2019 Golden Globes when announcing the winner of the Best Director gong – an obvious dig at the fact that most awards ceremonies this year seemed to forget that women exist. Greta Gerwig’s not invisible, people.
One of few women to be recognised in 2019 however, is British filmmaker Lucy Cohen – one of two female directors to have received a BAFTA nomination this year.
Her heart-wrenching directional debut, Netflix’s Kingdom of Us, follows the Shanks family, a mother and her seven children, in the aftermath of their father’s suicide, shining a light on the many faces of mental health and promoting the message, ‘It’s Ok to not be Ok.’
With a BAFTA nomination for Outstanding Debut by a British Director under her belt, Lucy should be set up for life. But having given birth just four days before her film premiere, her future as a female director is more uncertain than ever. As she told us herself, ‘I could never have madeKingdom Of Uswith a baby’.
Will that stop her? She says not. According to Lucy, enough is enough and she’s calling for change. Now.
