Director Greta Gerwig discusses Little Women

November 12, 2019 DGA Q&As in Los Angeles and New York

Four sisters come of age in America in the aftermath of the Civil War in Director Greta Gerwig’s new romantic period drama, Little Women.

Based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, Gerwig’s film tells the story of the March sisters – Amy, Jo, Beth and Meg – four girls all very different from each other, but who will stand by each other through difficult and changing times.

Following the DGA membership screening in Los Angeles on November 3, Gerwig sat down with Director Rian Johnson (Knives Out), to discuss the making of Little Women. She also discussed the film in a conversation moderated by Director Rebecca Miller (Maggie’s Plan) following the DGA membership screening in New York on November 12.

In addition to Little Women, Gerwig’s directorial credits include the romantic drama Nights and Weekends (co-directed with Joe Swanberg). She was nominated for the 2017 DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for Lady Bird. Gerwig has been a DGA member since 2015.
