“I’m nominating Ry Russo-Young because her skills as a filmmaker and her voice as an artist are strong enough that she can make the most intimate stories epic and the most epic stories intimate. She is the kind of ’80s art world film boss/dream babe I grew up worshipping. When she looks through the camera, even the inanimate comes to life. She’s funny and wise and boy does she look good in pants.”  –Lena Dunham
