* Please be informed that Director Meera Menon of “Equity” cannot attend the Q&A session after 24/9 screening due to personal reasons.
Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop’s (Anna Gunn) world of high-power big money is brutal and fierce, and one she thrives in. When a controversial IPO threatens the fragile balance of power and confidentiality, Naomi finds herself entangled in a web of politics and deception. With an aggressive prosecutor (Alysia Reiner) from her past on her heels, and a strained relationship with her junior, Erin (Sarah Megan Thomas), Naomi is forced to reexamine her own ambitions and the cutthroat world she love－one where women have yet to break the glass ceiling.
Meera Menon’s feature directorial debut, Farah Goes Bang, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and was awarded the inaugural Nora Ephron Prize by Tribeca/Vogue. The film also won the best narrative feature at CAAMFest, the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival, and the Austin Asian American Film Festival. Menon has also showcased in Glamour magazine’s “35 women under 35 running Hollywood,” and she was recently selected as a fellow at 20th Century Fox’s Global Directors Initiative.
