I think that’s where we need to get girls interested in making films. We need to give them the idea that they can, that it’s one of the things on their horizon.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) The film that changed my life is a 1951 film by Vittorio De Sica, ‘Miracle in Milan.’ It’s a remarkable comment on slums, poverty and aspiration.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) On telly, there’s been a move towards entertainment - with some very high-powered, fast-moving dramas. Then we have the Internet, where we get our information but it’s all in bite-size pieces. I think the documentary, as a form, actually speaks to what’s missing.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) I’ve discovered my Jewishness late in life. And I’ve really enjoyed exploring that world.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) Not many young women of my age have been lucky enough to have had a wonderful mentor in their life  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) The previous generation paved the way for my generation to gallop unheeded into jobs previously reserved for men.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) I come from the school who thought the Internet could be the great democratising force, that getting rid of the gatekeepers was a positive move.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) There is nothing wrong with Facebook in itself, except that it is not a very good tool to express the quality of your relationships.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) I think it is a great gift to make people laugh, and it shouldn’t be underestimated  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) If Twitter is worth seven billion next month, I’m happy for them to be worth six billion and spend a billion making it safer for people, for example.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) The thing that upsets me is the ubiquitous use of reward technology, which uses our evolutionary biology against us.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) Girls from poor families of the ‘untouchable,’ or lower, caste are ‘married’ to Yellamma as young as four. No longer allowed to marry a mortal, they are expected to bestow their entire lives to the service of the goddess.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) I’ve always been interested in exploring difficult subjects for the mainstream  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) Human beings have always told their histories and truths through parable and fable. We are inveterate storytellers  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) Arguably, it was the introduction of international non-proliferation treaties in the late 80s that finally led to the missiles being removed from Greenham Common.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) Everything serious in the world is well approached by humour. It’s a powerful and often quite subversive tool. I suppose there is an argument that could be made against me for being frivolous, but I do think a laugh is a very generous thing to give.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) I’ve liked being Jewish in America - there’s a secular version of Jewishness there that’s more about bagels and jokes than going to synagogues.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) I love being in real life, and in particular, I like being with young people  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) The devadasis have a multilayered story, a story in which poverty, deprivation and injustice against women is central - but what has happened to them is absolutely an outcome of imperialism and the impact of British rule in India.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) Whether in cave paintings or the latest uses of the Internet, human beings have always told their histories and truths through parable and fable. We are inveterate storytellers.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) For most women, Greenham was a place of principle, growth and song. Often joyful, sometimes terrifying, and almost always cold. As it got harder, with constant evictions and mounting violence from a frustrated and humiliated police force, the women got more determined. It was a community with a shared purpose - to live in peace.  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) Making a big commercial movie is hard when you think about how many of them flop  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) I think that stories, and the telling of stories, are the foundations of human communication and understanding. If children all over the country are watching films, asking questions and telling their stories, then the world will eventually be a better place  (Beeban Kidron Quotes) People have a right to have their lives witnessed; if we coexist with the systems that abuse people, then we have a duty to understand  (Beeban Kidron Quotes)
