According to the most reliable source in the history of mankind, The Guinness World Records, the first movie to attain a $100 million budget was 'True Lies' directed by James Cameron, one of the most successful directors of recent history and perhaps of all time. It took 24 years after 'True Lies' to be released to have a Black woman named Ava DuVernay achieve the same feat. Is there special Black woman magic™ (shout out to CaShawn Thompson) happening onscreen when the likes of Gina Prince-Bythewood or Dee Rees is the mastermind behind the scenes? Probably. Taisje, Jasmine, and Val talk about their favorite Black women directors and their impact on film and television. Follow us on Twitter: @HMTRPodcast
