Directed by AFI Alum Patty Jenkins (Class of 2000), WONDER WOMAN (2017) was honored with an AFI AWARD, recognizing it as one of the year’s most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image. According to the official AFI AWARDS rationale, ‘WONDER WOMAN smashes the stratosphere of status quo by giving the world what it needs most – a heroine whose heart beats with strength, hope and the power of love. Patty Jenkins’ masterful take on the iconic DC Comics character blasts beyond the walls of popcorn entertainment and lands firmly – and proudly – in the cultural zeitgeist. Gal Gadot’s embodiment of Diana Prince stands as an American icon for this moment in time – a superhero whose driving sentiment is, ‘Only love can save this world.'”
