We've had such an incredible time uncovering these amazing female filmmakers with you that we're back to do it again in 2018! We are so pleased to announce La Cineémathèque Film Club's Spring 2018 series: Women Film Directors 2. We're going to go even deeper into the world of women-created cinema and we hope you're as excited as us!
La Cinémathèque Film Club continues its series of Women Film Directors. The series is a chronology of pictures directed by women from around the world. It explores the social, economical and political aspects of each director’s home country and the cinematic language of the female filmmaker. After each screening, there will be a discussion about the different messages and viewpoints of these great directors, their impact on the world of cinema and their impact on the lives of women from various cultures. Memberships are available now from SOPAC on their website, at the box office, or by phone at (973) 313-2787.
