WOMEN MAKE FILM: A NEW ROAD MOVIE THROUGH CINEMA
2018, Turner Classic Movies, 60 min, UK, Dir: Mark Cousins

Most films have been directed by men, but for thirteen decades, and on all six filmmaking continents, thousands of women have also been directing films - including some of the best. What techniques did they use? What can we learn about cinema from them? This 14-part documentary explores how films are made, shot and edited; how stories are shaped and how movies depict life, love, politics, humor and death, all through the compelling lens of some of the world’s greatest directors - all of them women. "An invaluable film appreciation workshop ... it’s exciting to encounter so much originality from filmmakers I didn’t know, and to realize just how much of the world of cinema remains for me to discover." - Peter Debruge, Variety.
