About the Exhibition
The history of the audiovisual industry, excluding women, reflects a patriarchal society long urged to renew its values.
Women are gaining space and recognition, but their participation is still small, given the number of Brazilian productions. According to the last survey conducted by Ancine in 2016, women directed only 19% of Brazilian films released in that year, and no black woman has ever officially directed a feature film. Female screenwriters represent 15%, and executive producers have the highest percentage with 39%, while the direction of photography represents only 5% of the market.
The exhibition "Women in the Brazilian Audiovisual" aims to highlight the professionals in the sector, recognizing their talents and expanding the debate on the importance of equality in the industry.
