Lila Kitaeff: Movies That Break Boundaries

Jeannie Yandel

Hollywood is great at giving us fun, predictable stories, and Lila Kitaeff likes those movies. But sometimes, she wants something more out of her films. Lila's a filmmaker and the technical director at Reel Grrls, a nonprofit that teaches girls ages 9 to 19 moviemaking and media literacy. And three of her favorite movies push the boundaries of traditional Hollywood moviemaking. And what's more, these movies each push the viewer to be more than just a passive consumer. Lila tells KUOW's Jeannie Yandel about "Fast, Cheap And Out Of Control," "Tampopo," and "Sita Sings The Blues."
