OAA platinum open access series exploring the visual style of female filmmakers through a Film-Philosophy approach

Visionaries explores the aesthetic, industrial and cultural questions that relate to female filmmakers. Analysing formal styles, conceptual concerns, political perspectives and industrial realities, Visionaries creates a new perspective on the ways in which women filmmakers work and a new forum for considering their individual styles and cinematic worldviews.


Key Features
