CATE BLANCHETT AND ROBERT REDFORD WITH MARY MAPES AND DAN RATHER
Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015
7 – 8:30 PM ET
A TIMESTALKS CONVERSATION
Haft Auditorium at the Fashion Institute of Technology 227 W. 27th Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues
Academy Award®–winning actress and producer Cate Blanchett and Academy Award–winning actor, director and producer Robert Redford discuss their new film “Truth.” This powerful, real–life story of the newsroom drama spotlighted Dan Rather and his CBS 60 Minutes producer Mary Mapes, putting both at the epicenter of a journalistic storm. Dan Rather and Mary Mapes will join the discussion. Written and directed by James Vanderbilt and based on Mapes’s book “Truth and Duty,” the film goes behind the scenes of the 2004 CBS 60 Minutes investigation of then–President George W. Bush’s military service in the Texas Air National Guard. Interviewed by New York Times Magazine staff writer Susan Dominus.
Are women in Hollywood unfairly denied opportunities to act, direct, write and produce?
CATE BLANCHETT I do think there’s a sense in the industry, and in most industries, that a woman can’t screw up. Look at the number of second-time male directors: If for some reason their film doesn’t do well, in eight to 12 months they’re back in there again, someone backs them. It’s always on the marketing schedule that a woman has directed the film, which on one hand you want to celebrate, but on the other does put a remarkable amount of pressure on, is it going to work? So the numbers people go into it with their arms slightly crossed, and I think that has an impact on the courage of a woman’s creative expression.
Do you think the status for women in Hollywood is changing?
BLANCHETT Women who have been in the industry a long time are now producing themselves, like Angelina Jolie. She’s not waiting for roles to come to her. She’s proactively creating her own work. I think women get to a point where they can actually embrace the power, and that’s one of the biggest changes.
Talk about the economics of putting women front and center in films.
BLANCHETT The films with women at their center are generally lower-budget, because there is lazy thinking. But if you look at those films, they’re passion projects. People lose confidence, because the traditional marketing numbers don’t add up to the progressive nature of the films.
In what other ways can Hollywood change?
BLANCHETT When the director says you really need to be topless in this scene, I go, “Do I?” You have to fight back and claim the right to develop the character. Women need to empower themselves and claim even a character that’s written in a clichéd way. You don’t have to play it that way.
Cate Blanchett is to develop and direct an Australian TV series, “Stateless.”
The series centers on “the tragic and true story of Cornelia Rau, which made headlines in 2004.” The young German/Australian woman escaped a frightening cult only to be trapped in a bizarre labyrinth of psychiatric and legal systems, landing her in the notorious Baxter Immigration Detention Centre.
“’Stateless’ will be Cate Blanchett’s first venture into high-end TV,” said Screen Australia , the federal Australian funding agency that announced that it will providing development finance. Matchbox Pictures is the production company.
It is unclear if Blanchett intends to also appear as an actress in “Stateless.”
