Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media SmartBrief | May 11, 2017

Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis says her first screening of Oculus' 12-minute virtual reality film "Dear Angelica"-- which Davis narrates -- left her stunned. "This is an amazing new way to tell stories," Davis said. "What I also find very exciting is that it hasn't been gender-biased yet. It's an opportunity to start off a brand new visual medium with equal participation of women. I intend to encourage it as much as possible." Haute Living online (05/08)
