Women-Directed Docos About Women Directors
Because of the news about Geena Davis' involvement in Tom Donahue's project about women directors, and the very interesting Facebook conversations it stimulated, I'm collecting info about women-directed docos about women directors. Some are finished. Others are in progress. Each is to be treasured. What have I missed?
On the list so far–
Ally Acker's Reel Herstory
Amy Adrion's Half the Picture
Another Gaze's (Dorothy Allen-Pickard & Daniella Shreir's) In Conversation With
Beti Ellerson's Sisters of the Screen
Cady McClain's Seeing is Believing: Women Direct
Caroline Suh's The 4%: Film's Gender Problem
Julia & Clara Kuperberg's The Women Who Run Hollywood/ Et la femme créa Hollywood
Jennifer Dean's The 2d Sense & the 7th Art
Louise Hutt's Online Heroines
Yvonne Welbon's Sisters in Cinema (thanks for the headsup on this one, HerFilm)
Yvonne Welbon's Sisters in the Life (Yvonne's current project, on the history of black lesbian media makers)
(Just click on the pic to go to the full FB post and add your two bits.)
I'm also very interested in fictional movies about women making movies. My big ambition is to see Julie Dash's Illusions, available only through the fabulous Women Make Movies and a little costly for me because Women Make Movies is geared to an educational market: bring on an online, all-territory women's-film-distribution-service! I believe there are more on similar themes out there, so if you know of any, please let me know!
