Director Ryan Coogler and his female department heads helped bring “Black Panther” to life. Will they get the credit they’re due?
Coogler is known to surround himself with accomplished women, and the crew of “Black Panther” is unusual among blockbusters for its large number of female department heads. They include the director of photography Rachel Morrison and production designer Hannah Beachler, as well as Ruth E. Carter, the veteran costume designer responsible for Wakanda’s striking looks.
“In each one of the circumstances where I’ve worked with these incredible filmmakers that happen to be women, they were the best people for the job… If you aren’t opening up to find people who are truly the best, then that can limit you.” – Ryan Coogler
