Actress Nicole Kidman believes it is important to pay attention to the very small presence of women Directors in the film industry.

Kidman this year is involved in four projects presented in Cannes. Two of them are filmed by women — «Top of the lake» Jane Campion and «Fatal temptation» by Sofia Coppola. The last of them tells about a soldier-the Yankees, who falls to the women’s Board of the confederates during the civil war in 1864. The girls decide not to give it to their allies and to retain until full recovery. The film also starred Colin Farrell, Kirsten dunst and Elle fanning.

«In 2016, only 1.2% of all big-budget pictures were taken by women. These are the statistics provided by the group «Women in film». Only 183 of the episode, of the more than four thousand television episodes have been filmed by women. I think it’s important to say and continue to say we as women should support women Directors,» said Kidman reporters on Wednesday.

According to her, they all say that life in the film industry has changed for women, but in fact all remained the same. «We need to pay attention to it», — said the actress.

She added that the film «Fatal temptation» the story is told from the female point of view, women, cut off from the world to which a man comes and destroys everything. «Yeah, they even called me «the destroyer» on the set,» joked Colin Farrell.
