THE VOICE OF A WOMAN (VOW) will be hosting its international VOICE OF A WOMAN TALKS SERIES at the Cannes Film Festival this year (Friday May 11th – 12pm – @Plage45)  featuring Los Angeles based film director Nina Menkes (The Bloody Child, Phantom Love, Dissolution) in conversation with journalist Liza Foreman (Variety, New York Times, Film Francais, Hollywood Reporter).  
 
Following on the heels of her hit article which went viral on facebook and was named FILMMAKER’s #1 most popular post of 2017: http://filmmakermagazine.com/104175-the-20-most-popular-posts-of-2017/
NINA MENKES will present her acclaimed cinematic talk, “Sex and Power; The Visual Language of Oppression”, in which she discusses how the recent tidal wave of sexual abuse and assault revelations connects directly to the visual language of cinema. 
 
Menkes will show iconic film clips from the 1940’s through the present to support her compelling argument.  Followed by a conversation with  journalist Liza Foreman. Talk is presented by The Voice of a Woman.
 
THE VOICE OF A WOMAN was first established in London in 2009, screening the works of women filmmakers from around the world and presenting live conversations with women directors, writers, producers, creatives, technicians, and talent. 
 
Over the years THE VOICE OF A WOMAN has morphed in to THE VOICE OF A WOMAN FILM FESTIVAL & AWARDS in New York with founding sponsor HBO.  Each year the festival features the works of women film directors from around the world and closes with THE VOICE OF A WOMAN AWARD with among its recipients: Shirin Neshat, Kim Longinotto, Darnell Martin, Sarah Gavron, Shola Lynch, Deeyah Khan, The Mundo Sisters, Alison Owen, Faye Ward, Grace Jones, Sylvia Syms, Thandie Newton, and others.
 
ABOUT NINA MENKES
Nina Menkes is one of America’s most respected filmmakers. Her films are uncompromising in structure and scope, blending a powerful feminist sensibility and aesthetic to make complex, compelling narratives that often explore the intersection between sexuality and violence. She counts among her many admirers such independent film luminaries as Allison Anders (Gas Food Lodging), Gus Van Sant (Elephant) and Benecio Del Toro (Che).

To take photographs means...putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on a single axis...a means of understanding, which cannot be separated from other forms of visual expression. It is a way of shouting, of freeing oneself, not of proving or asserting one's originality.
It is a way of life."
--Henri Cartier-Bresson
