Women Make Film - Watch the trailer for 14 hour documentary

Mark Cousin's 14 hour documentary, Women Make Film, is set to premiere at TIFF this year and we now have the first full trailer to share.

Adjoa Andoh, Kerry Fox, Thandie Newton, Sharmila Tagore and Debra Winger all join the previously announced Jane Fonda and Tilda Swinton, who is also an executive producer as narrators.

Agnès Varda and Jane Campion are two of the great directors featured but scores of other filmmakers have used film in interesting ways - too many to mention but filmmakers such as: Safi Faye in Senegal, Forough Farrokhzad, Marva Nabili and Mania Akbari in Iran, Sumitra Peries in Sri Lanka, Angola’s Sarah Maldoror, Japan’s Kinuyo Tanaka, Ukraine’s Kira Muratova, Tunisia’s Moufida Tlatli, Bulgaria’s Binka Zhelyazkova, Lois Weber, Maya Deren, Angelina Jolie, Barbara Loden and others in the USA, Pirjo Honkasalo in Finland, Algeria’s Assia Djebar, Czechoslovakia’s Drahomira Viranova and Věra Chytilová, Cécile Tang and Anne Hui from Hong Kong and the UK’s Lynne Ramsay, Sally Potter, Wendy Towe, Antonia Bird and Clio Barnard.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
