Awake, which Paola di Florio & I co-wrote & co-directed, is one of only 17 films directed by women in the top 250 grossing films of 2014.  While we're proud of making this list, the numbers represent only a minor improvement from 2013, when women comprised 6% of all directors working on the top 250 films. As IndieWire's Women & Hollywood has reported, women directed 4.7% of studio films from 2009-2013, and the numbers are only slightly better in the world of independent filmmaking, where women directed 10% of films from 2009-2013.  See the 2014 list here:  http://blogs.indiewire.com/womenandhollywood/women-directed-17-of-the-top-250-grossing-films-of-2014-20150108
