why am i creating a documentary about women documentary directors when i’m a women documentary director….

Posted on Updated on

a documentary about women documentary directors by a women documentary director…created years ago and I’m almost done with this project … getting closer…guess there are a lot of women documentary directors who were born in America that I have to find and interview…but it will get done!


again i answer why i’m doing this interactive factual documentary (and stand alone film)

My objective is to show how Documentaries are shaped by new technology- forming new dialogues and ways to be together and communicate.

This cross-media approach is leading to new Dialogues and ways to be together and communicate.

This project will also provide an opportunity for scholars and “makers” of documentary or (interactive factual narrative) opportunities to see New Films, Found Films, Re-present documentary women directors work.

the Question…

Posted on

The directors discuss the reality of an explicit women’s point of view
The possibility of a women’s cinematic language
The desire in their films to ‘fantasize and dream a new image of
themselves’. (Is this possible? Is this what a woman director does?)
Are there sexual differences in selection of image, shot, and story?
Questions from: WOMEN WHO MADE THE MOVIES. A film made in 1992 by
Wheeler Winston Dixon. He spoke to and about early pioneers such as: Alice
Guy Blaché, Ruth Ann Baldwin, Ida Lupino, Leni Riefenstahl, Dorothy Davenport
Reid, Lois Weber, Kathlyn Williams, and Cleo Madison.
My question is why hasn’t more been written since the early 1990’s about women
documentary directors?
