Who cares who wore what on the Cannes red carpet! Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of our industry says otherwise.  Women in film - directors, writers, producers, actors - joined forces with the filmmakers responsible for in-competition entry Girls of the Sun  - to make a stand about representation, inclusion, and justice. Written and directed by Eva Husson, Girls of the Sun is one of mere three films directed by women to make it into the main Cannes selection this year.
