The Women in the Director’s Chair Oral History Project

Co-founded with filmmaker Louise Tiranoff, The Women in the Director’s Chair Oral History Project includes seventy-five oral history projects produced by undergraduate film students at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.  The strength of these projects comes from the diversity of the students producing them as well as their subjects: it is a collective effort to re-write the historical present.
