Archival footage from a 1983 intemew with Maria Schneider from French television Cinema/Cinema series used with permission from the director, Anne Andreue

A tribute to the French actress Maria Schneider, Subrin remixes an original 1983 interview with Schneider to highlight her prescient commentary on the patriarchal nature of the commercial film industry in France and the United States. Schneider's critique was decades ahead of her time and the current #MeToo movement.
