Exceptional - don't miss it!
9 September 2011 | by KarilDanielsSee all my reviews

Don't miss this truly great documentary, a most amazing, totally unique and deeply inspirational film by Lynn Hershman Leeson (Teknolust, Strange Culture), which will stand alone as a history lesson in gender politics and how that plays out in the art world. It is playing NOW, for a short run at the Lumiere Theatre on California St. in San Francisco. Hershman Leeson has spent 40 years collecting legacy footage and pursuing interviews to make this rare gem, which reveals the unknown history of women's art and the ostracism of major female artists from mainstream acceptance by museums & major galleries, solely because of their gender. I loved it and would gladly see it multiple times!
