Event Details

Venice Classics Documentary Films

Many years in the making, this bold follow-up to Mark Cousins’ The Story of Film uses hundreds of film clips to show how movies are made. Comprised of 40 chapters, it asks questions like how a great opening shot is done, how to frame an image, how to introduce a character, how to film sex, dance and death, how work and love are portrayed in cinema, and how the genres of comedy, melodrama and sci-fi work. Uniquely, all these questions are answered using only clips from films directed by women. The famous female directors are included, but so are scores of forgotten women from every period in film history and every continent.

Women Making Film is a revealing eye-opener, a celebration of the art and craft of cinema, and a j’accuse to film history.

Director: Mark Cousins

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

Many films about cinema feature only male directors, so this one is a repost. It is a film school, where all the teachers are female. There is much ignorance and blindness about women directing film. Our film boldly challenges this blindness.
