Kristen Stewart arrives at a French restaurant in Los Feliz without an entourage — no publicist, no bodyguard. She’s incognito, with a hat pulled low on her head, hands in her pockets, bare arms dressed with tattoos. Looking like any other hipster, she greets the waiter with a mellow “What’s up, dude?” (“dude” and “f—k” are her two favorite words) and orders a glass of champagne with a cup of ice. As she reflects on her life, she takes periodic sips, letting the cubes, one by one, melt into the fizz.

“I didn’t carve out some path,” Stewart says of her post-“Twilight” years. “I didn’t fight hard to be taken seriously. As much as the ‘Twilight’ series shaped and defined me for other people in a grand way, for me it wasn’t something I had to get away from. It was just a long experience on a movie that I liked.”

The year 2016 is shaping up to be a fascinating year for cool girls turned directors. First, wefound out last month that St. Vincent’s Annie Clark was making her own horror film for XX, an anthology of horror movies directed by and written about women. And now, even more exciting news: Kristen Stewart, Gabourey Sidibe, America Ferrera, and more will be helming films of their own for Refinery29’s female-directed series, ShatterBox Anthology.

As one might guess from the title, Sevigny’s short film is about a kitten—well, sort of. It’s actually based on a Paul Bowles short story by the same title about a little girl who, in a seemingly Kafka-esque turn of events, actually gets her wish. But less is known about Stewart’s film, which Variety reports is currently titledWater. The film will be Stewart’s directorial debut, and that’s about all we know. Same goes for Sidibe’s directorial debut for the series, A Tale of Four Women.

However little we know about Stewart’s and Sidibe’s shorts, we actually do have a few details on Ferrera’s work with the series, which is actually two separate projects. Variety describes the first, Behind the Headlines, as “a multimedia experience comprising video, text and images dedicated to ‘humanizing the conversations around the issues that matter to women.’” The second, Only Girl, is a docu-series that focuses on what women experience working in various male-dominated professions. The latter project in particular speaks to what ShatterBox is all about.

These anthologies come at a time when conversations about the gender discrimination women face in Hollywood have grown more resonant than ever. More and more people have begun to ask why, despite hit after hit from female directors, the field is still overwhelmingly dominated by men. And last October, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission interviewed female filmmakers to determine whether legal action against the industry was required to address discrimination against female directors in the TV and movie industries. (It will probably be a long time before we see how that shakes out, though.) Let’s put it this way: when Meryl Streep has to personally fund screenwriting labs for women over 40 to fix behind-the-camera representation in the industry, we have a problem. Hopefully, the ShatterBox series and others like it will help cultivate more female directors who will continue to push the industry in the right direction.
