Book News Annotation:

These interviews with filmmakers represent a range of directorial styles as well as a range of women: women of color as well as white women, lesbians as well as heterosexual, younger and older women, women of various classes, and established directors as well as those new to the craft. Though the majority of filmmakers are American, there are also directors from Central America, Canada, the UK, Europe, the Caribbean, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
