Hollywood star Michelle Yeoh made a very important point in this red carpet interview. She mentioned that she wished that there were more female directors nominated for awards. This is a nice statement, and I, like all people want to see the best films regardless of the gender of the director.
What she said next is where she differentiated herself from her fellow Hollywood friends. She said that she wants to see more minorities and women make it on merit. (As opposed to external pressure to diversify.)
There are wonderful stories to tell in movies. I find most Hollywood films to be very bad these days, but hopefully soon that tide will turn. It will usher in an era of diversity due to talent, and that’s something we can all celebrate.
