groundbreaking, inspiring and epic
8 July 2007 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Alexis Krasilovsky has made an important and entertaining film, chronicling the lives and careers of camera women all over the globe. The broad international scope is what I found most interesting about the film, and to see the parallels and differences of the different cultures and countries. At times humorous, touching, maddening and inspirational, this film should be of interest to anyone interested in film-making, as well as anyone interested in equality, and/or labor issues. Krasilovsky does a good job of presenting the subject in universal terms understandable to an industry outsider, and broadens the subject to be accessible by all.

Rare clips of the numerous subjects' work and wonderful behind the scenes footage of powerful women at work are cut well with sensitive interviews of women of all ages opening up about some of the challenges they've faced. This film does not shy away from Hollywood's dirty little secrets or skirt the issues addressed. The risks of indiscretion can be deadly to a freelancer's career, and I commend these women for baring their souls to us. I also commend Krasilovsky for creating an outlet for their messages.

Yet this film doesn't wallow in self-pity or try to present an agenda. It's more of an introduction to dozens of accomplished artists and journalists and their collective and individual stories. I see this film as an inspirational collection of triumphs that motivates the viewer to further explore the work of these incredible women.

Luckily for those of us desiring more, Krasilovsky has a previously published book of the same name, as well as a vast website to accompany the film. I look forward to seeing the 2 disc DVD set with additional interviews, as well as the upcoming second edition of the book.
