A look at our sisters behind the camera and what they're doing
25 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As one of those who are the last to leave the theatre after a movie, I sit and watch all the credits, looking for names of women, as well as those of different cultures. Rarely do I see a woman's name in the director of photography, but this film shows we've been steadily breaking in.

It is a fascinating celebration of that struggle. And it's not just about US women, though that history would be exciting in itself. But discovering women filmmakers from Afghanistan to México, seeing a woman document Mao's regular trips to the Chinese countryside to be with the peasants, meeting a woman in India who became a cinematographer after first seeing pictures moving "in a box," seeing women cover wars, hearing one woman's unique way of stopping sexual harassment - this is a well-rounded and remarkably universal study.
