In addition, we explore the state of the film industry, including its facing competition from cable television's high quality series, and the continuing development of technologies like Netflix and Hulu that stream films making it harder to attract film audiences. Most importantly, we place a great deal of emphasis on one problem that has haunted Hollywood for decades, the issue of diversity"--
