Hearthside Salons with PageCraftWriting

Sara Nesson - Oscar-Nominated Writer/Director/Producer - PosterGirl Persistence

November 9, 2020

Filmmaker Sara Nesson knows something about succeeding in a man’s world. Her recent documentary Women Who Score covers 20 female composers in changing Hollywood. Her documentary Poster Girl about the first female gunner in the Iraq war, garnered her Oscar and Emmy nominations. Her quest to bring the story to the screen as a narrative feature continues to be a roller-coaster. We’ll talk about representation and what it means to be a woman who persists.
