So far so good. I've read a few of the interviews and they are very interesting. However, I think it important to note that this came out in 1993, so some of the references and issues are a little outdated, but of course, when it comes to filmmaking, it's important for us younger ones to know who paved the way! I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in moving up the filmmaking food chain, and especially other young women.
