SIM EP 163, Bonus Pod: Girls on Film: a London Film Festival Special

In another treat for you this week, our Jen has been tearing around the BFI's 2018 London Film Festival, in which this year the Institute is screening more films by female filmmakers than ever before. Jen caught up with the directors (and a producer!) of three top films showing at this year's festival: Naziha Arebi and Flore Cosquer, director and producer of Freedom Fields, an inspiring documentary about the Libyan women's national football team; Sudabeh Mortezai, director of the devastating drama Joy, about a Nigerian woman trafficked into the European sex industry; and Jessica Leski, director of the nostalgic documentary I Used to be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story.
