Kitty Green Showcases Structural Misogyny in “The Assistant”

“I grew up around a lot of women who have followed their dreams,” says Kitty Green, a previous AACTA winner for Best Feature-Length Documentary and now director and writer of The Assistant, starring Julia Garner and Matthew Macfadyen, which covers a day in the life of a young assistant working for an exploitive and predatory executive. Originally conceived as a project on consent and institutional power, the film shifted focus when the Harvey Weinstein story broke.
