Women In Motion Podcast: Season 2
Kering and his Women In Motion podcast are returning for a second season devoted to important figures in film. This season will treat you to hear the voices of a producer, a casting director, an agent, and a film critic.
Women In Motion was designed as a feminist platform and was initiated in 2015 in Cannes by Kering, who is an official partner of the festival. With its talks, awards, and podcasts Women In Motion serves as a stage for gender equality, where the women both behind and in the scenes of our favorite films are able to come forward to speak their truth. Through the show, listeners can look into the industry and learn about its changes and advantages.
In the Spring Women In Motion celebrated their 5 year birthday with the release of their first season of podcasts. The season gave voice to five women who demonstrate the diversity and inclusivity of the Women In Motion program: Agnès Varda, Jodie Foster, Salma Hayek, Aïssa Maïga and Emilia Clarke. Their discussions on the show reflect on the place of women in film and society.
The brave voices heard in the first season have paved the path for new stories to be heard. In this next series of podcasts, the voices will be less recognizable, but just as interesting. Marie-Ange Luciani, producer and director of Films de Pierre, Christel Baras, casting director, Elisabeth Tanner, founder and President of Time Art, Sidonie Dumas, producer and General Manager of Gaumont and lastly Guillemette Odicino, a film critic, will come together to share their perspectives for the second season of the Women In Motion podcast.
These five voices, for five different episodes, will guide listeners to better understand the various issues faced by women working in the film industry. Following a pivotal few years of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, this podcast continues the fight and opens up the discussion to the public. It will be open, honest, and enlightening, but most importantly it will act to change the conditions of women in the workforce.
