Patty Jenkins: Wonder Woman

Hosted by

Having last directed 2003s Monster, Patty Jenkins reenters the realm of directing with the summer blockbuster Wonder Woman. Tackling a story of female empowerment set in the culturally complex setting of World War I, Jenkins creates a universal tone while portraying a female lead who is both fierce and loving. Today, Jenkins explains her visual juxtaposition of the mythological "Themyscira" to "man's world" and her use of artist John Singer Sargent-inspired color in the film.
