Feminisms in the Cinema Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Feminisms in the Cinema provides a platform for both women filmmakers and the women who analyze their films." --Bloomsbury Review

"... invaluable... [demonstrates] how gender and genre intersect... how feminisms are flourishing, at home and abroad." --Women's Review of Books

Well-known feminist theorists juxtapose their work with that of women filmmakers. Each writer addresses some aspect of marginality, discussing it as a political strategy and as a challenge to power structures.

Synopsis:

These essays confront issues of women's identification, representation, and self-representation film, dealing with a pluralistic conception of 'difference' rather than polarizing it as an issue related only to gender.
