Directed by Greta Gerwig
Before there was Barbie, there was Mistress America, Frances Ha, Hannah Takes the Stairs and White Noise. We’ve still got a couple more weeks before Greta Gerwig-directed Barbie hits cinemas – until then catch films starring, written by, produced and/or directed by the American wunderkind at ACMI now until July 23.
