“There is a pride that goes with being in a male-dominated industry. I also love the fact that the group of people that I started off with is mostly female. I am sure that it was something to do with our gender that made us connect on some of the topics we wanted to talk about in our film. I have to say, however, that editing is possibly the one specialization in film where women have been given more access and that I believe is because an editor contributes a lot but does all the work locked in a dark room, behind the scenes—the contribution is not apparent.”
