With it’s international premiere forming a key part of the Sundance: London 2018 programme and expectations on high, a brand new trailer has been released for Half the Picture, Amy Adrion‘s debut documentary on gender discrimination in the Hollywood system.

Amid the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements which have highlighted gender inequality in the film industry, Sundance Film Festival: London champions female voices and asks #WhatNext. 58% of the films showcased at the festival have been directed by women, along with a thrilling array of female leads, writers and producers featuring across the festival line-up.
