According to Zawahry, “The College of Journalism and Communications wanted to create a series for the students and our community to stay uplifted and engaged during quarantine, so they asked me what I thought about doing a woman in film series.”

The next speakers in the series include Li Lu on April 22, an Asian American director in documentary and narrative film; Jesi Rojas, a Venezuelan American film editor and recent CJC graduate; Lena Khan, an Indian American Muslim director and the first hijabi director in Hollywood; and one more unannounced filmmaker.
