BARBRA STREISAND is a musical theater and actress powerhouse who made her directorial debut with Yentl (1983) which she fought to get made and opened the door for future directing and producing opportunities.
Much like Mary Pickford in the early days of the industry Streisand insists on shaping her own career. She was the Oscar presenter for the monumental moment when Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win an Academy Award for Best Director.
