"You keep hearing the same kinds of stories with the same kind of heroes over and over again, and we are becoming fatigued by these. When something comes from a very different perspective or voice, it's fresh and it pops in a way that is really exciting, and there are so many examples of that, whether its filmmakers of colour or women filmmakers...So much of our cultural conversation is about these new ideas from people who have not traditionally been in this system because it's just exciting and it's different. When it's just the same group of people recycling the same ideas, then that's a loss for all of us."
