April is Earth Month and WIFSFBA would like to celebrate by highlighting women filmmakers working to tell stories and documentaries about the environment and the ever growing dangers of climate change.

Highlighting WIFSFBA Member Cynthia Abbott

We previously had Cynthia Abbott in our Member Spotlight section here: Women in Film San Francisco Bay Area - Member Spotlight - Cynthia Abbott where she had received a Northern California Emmy® for Three Ocean Advocates: Inspiring Change in the Educational/Science (Long Form Content) category. I went back and asked Cynthia to tell us more about her current environmental film work for this edition of the newsletter for Earth month.  Thanks Cynthia!

- Nil Unerdem

“As an environmental filmmaker I focus on the ocean. I have a personal passion for the ocean having lived near its shore my entire life and witnessed its rapid decline.  My hope is that my films are a wakeup call to the urgency of the climate crisis and the importance of a healthy ocean for a healthy planet. Covering more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and producing more than 50% of the oxygen we breathe, the ocean is literally the lungs of our planet.  As vital as the ocean is to sustaining life in and above the water, its critical importance to us and the living world has been overlooked, undervalued, and often dismissed.  Now pollution, overfishing, ocean acidification, and a warming planet are ushering in an era of unprecedented threats to marine ecosystems.


My films have focused on plastic pollution, whale entanglements and sustainable fishing, coral bleaching, and sea star wasting disease.

I am co-producer/director of EVERY SECOND BREATH, an Emmy® award-winning series of documentary short films that look at the crises threatening the health of our ocean and how even a few individuals can make a difference. Each story takes viewers on a journey that introduces citizens of the world who share a strong connection to the ocean. Told through the eyes of individual ocean advocates who share the profound influence the ocean has on their lives and their tireless commitment to protecting it, viewers learn how unintentional actions are often the cause of environmental harm. They are also offered hope and resilience to encourage each of us to take action and find solutions that affect change. 


'Ocean Soundscape' is my latest short that focuses on human- generated noise pollution in the ocean and the injurious and often deadly threats to marine life and ecosystems. Sadly, the noise is only getting louder. The impacts to marine life from noise generated by the rapidly increasing industrialization of the ocean from offshore wind turbines, increased shipping, seismic surveys, oil drilling, dredging, is addressed through a compelling narrative, sound design, and visuals. The film will show how the Anthropocene has ushered in an era of imminent danger to the animals that live in the ocean and depend on their soundscape to survive. The short will bring this increasing danger to the surface through a compelling story.”

Important Women Who Helped Shape Film & Cinema History

Ongoing Newsletter Series - by Tasha Nesbitt

Agnes Varda via Flickr.com

There have been many important women trailblazers in film and cinema history who have made significant contributions to the industry as directors, producers, screenwriters, actors and more. 

In each monthly newsletter, we will highlight a different one:


Agnès Varda was a French film director, screenwriter, and producer who made significant contributions to the film industry throughout her career. She was born on May 30, 1928 in Ixelles, Belgium and grew up in France.

Varda's work was influential in the development of the French New Wave movement, and she is considered one of the most important filmmakers of the 20th century. Her films often explored themes of identity, memory, and social justice, and she was known for her innovative use of storytelling techniques and experimental approach to filmmaking.

Varda began her career as a photographer and eventually transitioned into filmmaking, directing her first feature film, La Pointe Courte, in 1955. The film was an early example of the French New Wave movement and established Varda as a key figure in the French film industry. Over the course of her career, Varda directed more than 30 films, including documentaries, fiction films, and experimental works. Some of her most well-known films include Cleo from 5 to 7 (1962), The Gleaners and I (2000), and Faces Places (2017).

In addition to her filmmaking work, Varda was also a writer and visual artist. She was a feminist and a champion of women's rights, and many of her films explored issues related to gender and social justice.

Varda was the recipient of numerous awards and honors throughout her career, including an honorary Academy Award in 2017 and the Honorary Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. She died on March 29, 2019 at the age of 90, leaving behind a legacy as one of the most innovative and influential filmmakers of her time.

Root of Evil Speaker Event

When: April 20 @7PM PDT

Where: Virtual Zoom

Register here: Root of Evil Event Registration

“The Root of Evil: The True Story of the Hodel Family and the Black Dahlia,” is an American investigative crime podcast covering the Black Dahlia murder and suspect George Hodel. The podcast was produced as a partnership between Cadence13 and TNT as a companion to the fictional television series I Am the Night executive produced by Patty Jenkins. 

Set in the 1960s, the TNT series I Am the Night, starring Chris Pine and India Eisley, is based on the life of Fauna Hodel, the daughter of Dr. George Hodel, who was linked to the infamous, unsolved 1947 “Black Dahlia” murder in Hollywood of aspiring actress Elizabeth Short. Executive producer, Patty Jenkins, befriended Fuana Hodel’s daughters, Yvette Gentile and Rasha Pecoraro, who were often on set. The sisters created the eight-part docuseries, Root of Evil: The True Story of the Hodel Family and the Black Dahlia on Apple Podcasts, as a companion podcast to the show.

We’re excited to have Yvette Gentile and Rasha Pecoraro join us for a speaker event through WIFSFBA on April 20th!

Sisters Yvette Gentile and Rasha Pecoraro

Creators & Co-Hosts Bios - 

Sisters Yvette Gentile and Rasha Pecoraro are primarily recognized as the co-hosts of the wildly popular podcast “Root of Evil: The True Story of the Hodel Family and the Black Dahlia,” a 2020 iHeartRadio ‘True Crime Podcast of the Year’ nominee. The dark story of their mother Fauna Hodel’s life garnered the attention of superstar Chris Pine (Star Trek, Hell or High Water), actress India Eisley (Underworld: Awakening, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) and award-winning director Patty Jenkins (Monster, Wonder Woman) and became a six-episode TNT limited television series I Am The Night, which premiered in January 2019.

Gentile and Pecoraro return to the airwaves with a new weekly podcast from Tenderfoot TV and iHeart radio called “Facing Evil.” In their latest venture, the siblings bring their unique perspective of growing up in a family with a dark history, to true crime with a focus on the victims and individuals at the heart of the stories. 

 “If we can make a difference and teach others how we can be better human beings by doing good in the world, we will have achieved everything our mother stood for,” says the pair. “Our goal for this show is to find a light in the darkness and to bring awareness to those stories that are as deserving of the attention that our family has received. By shining light on these other stories of evil, we strive to foster healing.” 


Outside of podcasting, Gentile is also an actor, model, and sandal designer with her husband Gino. She is an avid yogi who trains for and practices classes specific to individuals confronting distress and long-term grief and pain. She splits her time between her hometown of Hawaii, San Francisco and Italy.


Pecoraro was a fierce competitor on “The Biggest Loser” in 2006. Since then, she’s advocated for beauty at any size as a plus size model and married her wife Vanna in 2010. She is a proud LGBTQ+ advocate and activist, mother, as well as an actor and voiceover artist. She resides near Portland but remains a forever native of Honolulu.

An Evening with Gabrielle Carteris

When: June 8th

Where: Virtual Zoom

Join WIFSFBA as we welcome actor and activist Gabrielle Carteris! Gabrielle will talk about the current state of the industry and the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein scandal, and how it changed culture in our industry and led to laws to protect artists.

 Gabrielle Carteris Bio - 

Gabrielle Carteris was elected president of the International Federation of Actors, or FIA, in May 2021. She is the immediate past president of SAG-AFTRA, where for more than five years she headed the union of 160,000 actors, recording artists, dancers and broadcasters. Before SAG and AFTRA merged in 2012, Carteris served in leadership positions in both unions, as well as on the merger committee.

Carteris became a household name playing Andrea Zuckerman on Beverly Hills, 90210 and more recently starred in BH90210, a revival of the iconic show. Her extensive resume includes work in television, film and the stage, including guest-starring roles on We Own This City, NCIS and Criminal Minds and voice work for video games. Onstage, she performed a special presentation of The Vagina Monologues to raise money to combat violence against women and child abuse. As a producer, Carteris created Lifestories, a series of specials, and Gabrielle, a talk show that she also hosted.

As SAG-AFTRA president during the first several months of the COVID pandemic, she guided the union’s response to create a set of strict industry wide protocols to ensure that sets and other workplaces were as safe as possible. As the head of the President’s Task Force on Education, Outreach and Engagement, she also led efforts to hold regular remote workshops, panels and seminars to keep members connected during the unprecedented disruption to the industry.

A survivor of a serious on-set injury, safety has been a priority initiative for Carteris. She formed the President’s Blue Ribbon Safety Commission, which has advocated for intimacy coordinators to be present on set during the filming of simulated sex scenes and other hyper exposed work. The Commission has also taken concrete steps to confront harassment, make sets safer for stunt performers and establish the COVID safety protocols.

A fierce advocate for diversity, Carteris has taken on age bias in the industry, championed the unionization of Spanish-speaking performers and broadcasters, worked toward gender and pay equity and led efforts to advance greater inclusion in the industry at all levels.

Carteris is a board member of the Solidarity Center, the largest U.S.-based international worker rights organization. Allied with the AFL-CIO, it strives to attain safe and healthy workplaces, fair wages and greater equity. In August 2016, Carteris was elected a vice

president on the AFL-CIO’s executive council, re-elected in 2017 and co-leads a sexual harassment workgroup. She also is a founding ambassador of ReFrame, an initiative of Women In Film and Sundance Institute to further gender parity in the media industry. In

2017, Carteris was appointed commissioner to the Hollywood Commission on Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality. In addition, she serves as a trustee of the American Film Institute and is a board member of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

In 2008, Carteris served the Screen Actors Guild as fifth alternate national director, in 2009 as first alternate national director and in 2010 she began a three-year term as a National Board member. Her previous American Federation of Television and Radio

Artists service includes two consecutive terms on the AFTRA Los Angeles Local Board and the AFTRA National Board, three terms as an AFTRA convention delegate in the actor category and, in 2011, she was elected Los Angeles Local president and national second vice president. As part of the Group for One Union, she was instrumental in developing the plan to merge SAG and AFTRA.

She also served SAG-AFTRA during the transition year as national vice president, Los Angeles. In 2019, SAG-AFTRA presented Carteris with the George Heller Memorial Award for her years of union service.
