From a documentary about a pharmacy in a southwest U.S. mining town to a short drama about a young, female military academy cadet, the eight selections at the American Cinematheque’s 10th annual Focus on Female Directors are a diverse lot. Following the screening will be a talk with several of the directors. Among them are Helen Hood Scheer, whose doc The Apothecary won a Student Academy Award, and Alexis O. Korycinski, whose military drama The Haircut premiered at AFI Fest in 2014. Also scheduled to be on hand are Amy Lee Ketchum (Dreaming Los Angeles) and Lydia Hyslop (Big Money!).
