The first director to tell a story on the screen, the highest paid director in the silent days, the pioneer of socially conscious films, the first editor to receive solo screen credit, all were women.  
Based on the groundbreaking two book edition classic used in universities around globe,  Reel Women: THE FIRST HUNDRED YEARS by Ally Acker, JODIE FOSTER takes us on a sweeping journey that looks at the remarkable achievements of female filmmakers from 1896 into the 21st century who transformed the way we look at movies. Using never-before-screened footage, and exclusive interviews with filmmakers all over the globe, Reel Herstory corrects the notion that women behind the scenes held adjunct or peripheral careers, and restores them rightfully to their pioneering status.
