“American Masters: The Women’s List,” a new portrait series and documentary by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, features 15 trailblazers

In American Masters: The Women’s List, premiering September 25 on PBS, 15 women who are leaders in their respective fields talk about the challenges they faced as they worked to ascend in our male-dominated world.

The hourlong documentary was directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, who also shot a series of portraits of the women. The list includes U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, designer Betsey Johnson, actresses Edie Falco and Rosie Perez, author Toni Morrison, and musician Laurie Anderson.

“As a lifelong feminist, I’m proud to have made The Women’s List and excited to have another one of my films join the American Masters library,” says Timothy.

People magazine is offering a preview of the documentary. And visit pbs.org to learn more about The Women’s List.

“Meru” opens in theaters nationwide today. Plus: National Geographic on “Why Jimmy Chin Takes Pictures While Climbing and Skiing Mountains”

Jimmy Chin‘s award-winning documentary, Meru, opens in theaters nationwide today. In the film, Jimmy and two fellow pro climbers battle their complicated pasts, inner demons, and nature’s harshest elements in an attempt to confront the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru, the most technically complicated and dangerous peak in the Himalayas, one that has never been scaled to completion. Check this list of theaters to see where Meru is playing near you.

Jimmy will be doing Q&As at select showings throughout the country. Next Wednesday, August 19, he’ll be at the Angelika Film Center for the 7:20 p.m. screening and will be taking questions from the audience after the show. Stop by if you can; the Q&A is included in the price of your ticket. Order online here.

The film, which Jimmy codirected with his wife, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, has been getting lots of great press. Jimmy, Elizabeth, and Into Thin Air author Jon Krakauer were featured on AOL’s Periscope. Men’s Journal gave viewers a glimpse of Jimmy and his fellow climbers’ campsite at 20,000 feet. The New York Times published a piece by Elizabeth on the making of the film. The New Yorker, which recently published a fun item on Jimmy and Elizabeth in its “Talk of the Town” section, invited Jimmy to take over its photo department’s Instagram feed for a week.

And National Geographic published a piece on “Why Jimmy Chin Takes Pictures While Climbing and Skiing Mountains,” which looks at “how a kid from Minnesota found Taoism, skied Everest, and made the year’s breakout adventure documentary.” Read it here.
