"Through her lens : an introduction to contemporary French women directors"
In this course, we will take a look at French women directors’ stylistic and narrative strategies within their socio-historical context. We will discuss how such strategies might challenge our interpretation of ‘women’ filmmaking. Other topics of discussion will likely include gay and lesbian filmmaking, gender construction, marginal identities, ageism, sexuality, and disability. (Themes are subject to change.)
