When she was in 2017, a member of the Berlinale Jury, vexed, Maggie Gyllenhaal. In two weeks you had seen 25 movies. "Although there were including some wonderful acting performances by women, but one of the movies was about a woman who is obsessed with her lover, and two other women were mentally ill," she says. "In my life, I've only seen very few female characters in the cinema that I can bring with my own experience."

As a producer of two projects, it now has the possibility of this Problem yourself. Gyllenhaal speaks with us in New York on the Set of "The Kindergarten Teacher".

The Film was developed almost entirely by women, including several Producers. Gyllenhaal says that she took finally place, also a Producer, because of the success of "The Kindergarten Teacher" was more and more on the heart. "I wanted to be involved in all decisions that are for the Film's Central, not only in acting," said the American. "The Film represents the state of a woman to the centre and shows a specifically female experience."

From Kindergarten to Porn

"The Kindergarten Teacher" occupied at the time of the HBO series "The Deuce" is a Producer. This is the latest project from David Simon ("The Wire") and tells the story of the emerging porn industry in the seventies. Gyllenhaal is a prostitute and Eileen Merrell, named Candy, porn actress and Director. As the pay-TV broadcaster was the role of the actress, had Simon written only three of the first eight episodes. Although the series developer enjoys a high degree of recognition, flinch Gyllenhaal to play Candy. You didn't want to rashly assume a role that is, perhaps, as the arg is over-simplified. "Often enough, women have to take every role they get," says Gyllenhaal.

And it just was not mentioned in the credits, but a real collaboration."

You can write an E-Mail?" Or: "You know, these or those people – you can go with them to lunch and ask them if they would participate in the financing?" And later, I must then to a dinner with potential buyers from various film festivals. So you take automatically the production tasks."

Gyllenhaal finds exciting, and what has changed compared to the past "Today everything is different, for example, in 2001, when I shot "Secretary"," she says. "It was not so difficult, the two million Dollar raise, the the Film cost." That was a whole other world. "With regard to the Produce, I myself in the meantime, from a total beginner to a converted, achieved so nearly intermediate level," says the actress. "I want to develop, especially Indie films."
