Film Makers: 15 Groundbreaking Women Directors
Young Adult Non-Fiction
by Lyn Miller-Lachmann and Tanisia “Tee” Moore
In Hollywood, women don’t have to be in front of the cameras to shine.
Each of the 15 women profiled in Film Makers share a common trait: she is, as Shonda Rhimes says, “First. Only. Different.”
These phenomenal women have entered into the film and television industry often being the first woman at a prestigious film school, the first woman to win an award usually given to their male counterparts, or even the first BIPOC to be nominated as—and win—best director at the Academy Awards.
While their resumes are impressive, it is how they live their lives that has made a greater impact in the communities they serve.
Publication date: September 6, 2022
“An appealing look at some of today’s best-known women filmmakers.”

Now with a devoted boyfriend and a promising career as a future OB/GYN, she had all the pieces in place for a great life. As she begins to deal with personal convictions, Brooke starts to question her current relationship as soon as her ex reappears. While struggling with forgiveness, Brooke enters into a period of her life she never saw coming.
With the stress of not living up to his father’s expectations to follow his footsteps in ministry, Rashad became a smooth playboy with a controlling girlfriend fighting to change his ways. It wasn’t until his brother began to date his ex’s sister that he started to question his freedom as a bachelor and revisit one of the biggest mistakes of his life…breaking up with Brooke.
When these former high school sweethearts rekindle their initial friendship in the middle of their own turmoil, their collision causes a storm neither of them saw coming.
Will Brooke and Rashad be able to stand together after the storm settles or will their rekindled friendship end before it begins?
