Film critic and documentarian Mark Cousins, best known for his comprehensive The Story of Film from 2011, sets out on a monumental journey to chronicle the massive contribution women provided to the artform we love best. In this fourteen hour series (shown in KINO in five parts) spanning thirteen decades and five continents Cousins doesn’t just single out ‘female’ filmmakers as subordinated or victimized in a male dominated industry but simply sets out to discover the work of women as filmmakers. Focussing on their work and contextualizing the historical significance of their films based on their merit. It’s a dazzling series that digs deep and unearths fantastic cinema from filmmakers deserving of more recognition. Women Make Film feels like discovering a whole new section in an excellent cult video store that you somehow previously never noticed.
