Anna’s 35mm cult feature VIVA and her 16mm art-film shorts have screened at major film festivals and art spaces around the world, and her work has been written about in academic journals. She is known for her use of classic and outdated film genres to talk about female roles within culture, coding feminist ideas within cinematic aesthetics and visual pleasure. She creates all of her own costumes and set designs, making many or the props and paintings as well as composing and scoring for her films. She has a BA in art from UCLA, and an MFA in art and film from CalArts. She continues to work on film because of her interest in emulating the look and feel of classic cinema, and her latest film, THE LOVE WITCH, was made using only traditional film processes. THE LOVE WITCH centers on a modern-day witch who uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, in a tribute to 1960s Technicolor thrillers. This movie is 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Disney: Sorry Ladies, Your Pay Equity Class Action Suit Can’t Be A Class Action Because Figuring Out The Math Would Be Hard. "Ten women across the Walt Disney Company claim that the Bob Iger-run media giant doesn’t pay women fairly and are challenging the House of Mouse in court in a proposed class action first launched this spring...“Disney is essentially arguing that it is too big to be held accountable. But no company should be permitted to evade equal pay laws just because it is large.”...Facing what could be hundreds of millions of dollars in pay adjustments and past compensation if the class action is allowed to continue and gearing up for a brave new streaming future, family focused Disney obviously don’t want to be having to do that. This battle comes in an environment when many media companies and others are committing themselves to California’s Equal Pay Pledge – which Disney has not yet inked for its over 60,000 stateside employees. As it is, women overall in American earn about 80% of what men do, at best." Read the full article here!
