About a month ago, an eye-opening article was published in the Hollywood Reporter about female composers and assistants who have been harassed and abused by filmmakers and composers respectively. While acknowledged by many in our field, there has been controversy and disagreement in the discussions that have left some victims feelings unheard, misunderstood, and helpless. We hope to shed more light and understanding on the topic with this live interview.
