2 or 3 Things I Know About Her

Five women directors. Five stories with women heroines at their center. Five “women’s films” then? We might agree if someone could explain what exactly that means. So then why a separate segment? Because, if you will, the only way to find out that the word “women’s” doesn’t have any special meaning as an adjective before the word cinema, is to try and examine how such an idea can be applied to specific examples. And because, as Jane Campion once said, women “represent half of the population – and gave birth to the whole world. Without them writing and being directors, the rest of us are not going to know the whole story”. So let’s try and see the whole story. No labels required.
