Students will examine both women’s filmic representation (women on film) and women in film, with a focus on women auteurs, aesthetics, and issues of labor/production. They will also reflect on women’s film culture in the era of #MeToo by looking to film festivals and feminist labor practices as a site for women’s film activism.
