Italian Women Filmmakers And The Gendered Screen (Italian And Italian American Studies)
Italian Women Filmmakers and the Gendered Screen (Italian and Italian American Studies)
Featuring essays by top scholars and interviews with acclaimed directors, this book examines Italian women's authorship in film and their visions of reality. The contributors use feminist film criticism in the analysis of their works and give direct voices to the artists who are constantly excluded by the conventional Italian film criticism.
"Italian Women Filmmakers and the Gendered Screen is an absolute must read for Italian film scholars specializing in women filmmakers. A particular kind of women filmmakers: those who are clearly not interested in directing and producing mainstream feature films per se, but, rather, are eager to promote an innovative discourse in cinema." - Stefania Lucamante, Professor of Italian and Comparative Literature, The Catholic University of America, USA
