Kathryn Bigelow by Gina Bahremand

  1. 1. “ Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow is just a woman who likes to blow stuff up” by Gina Bahremand
  2. 2. “ A useful, powerful vision is one that inspires as it unites, that focuses attention on what matters most while it guides action.”
  3. 3. Who is Kathryn Bigelow? <ul><li>“ I’ve spent a fair amount of time thinking about what my aptitude is, and I really think it’s to explore and push the medium. It’s not about breaking gender roles or genre traditions.” </li></ul>In 2009, Kathryn Bigelow became winner of the first Academy Award ever presented to a female director, for her outstanding Best Picture winner, The Hurt Locker… <ul><li>“ My dad dreamed of being a cartoonist, but he never achieved it, and it kind of broke my heart.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I wanted the film to have a reliance on authenticity.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Not either/or but both and more. <ul><li>“ a director who has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, enjoys deep sea diving and, once, married James Cameron.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ it's as simple as this: she may be a Lacanian-steeped, conceptual-art-based auteur, but she also really likes going to the middle of the desert and blowing stuff up..” </li></ul>“ Each one of us can take practical steps to embody greater authenticity and thereby produce better results in all aspects of our lives.”
  5. 5. Evidence of Authenticity. <ul><li>“ she always knew who she was, and what she was capable of, and never ever gave up.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I don’t like violence. I am very interested, however, in the truth. And violence is a fact of our lives, a part of the social context in which we live.” </li></ul>Kathryn Bigelow defied the odds with the boldness of her vivid imagination, unwavering tenacity and uncompromising vision.
