Another Lens: 2017 Edition

The pledge: To expand my cinematic and cultural viewpoint, at least 50% of films that I watch this year will be directed by a person not from the cishet white male demographic.

Ai Weiwei, Ayo Akingbade, Pedro Almodóvar (2), Lucia Aniello, Jennifer Baichwal, Catherine Bainbridge, Ruth Beckermann, Behnam Behzadi, Maggie Betts, Sofia Bohdanowicz (6), Bong Joon-ho, Cory Bowles, Robin Campillo, Shirley Clarke (3), Sofia Coppola, Andrea Culkova, Mamadou Dia, Andrés Padilla Domene, Julia Ducournau, Ezra Edelman, Martin Edralin, Daniel Espinosa, Feng Xiaogang, David France, Greta Gerwig, James Gist, Sophie Goyette, F.
