Woodstock Film Festival, Day Three: Susan Seidelman
Saturday, I attended the panel "Amazing Women in Film" -- though I got there late. I did hear the question: "Did you have difficulties being accepted as women directors?"
Susan Seidelman replied, "When I was making Desperately Seeking Susan, I was very young, I'm 5 feet tall, and there were no women directors. People were constantly coming onto the set and asking me to get them coffee.
"So I would get them coffee, then I'd tell them I was the director."
