Category: documentary

Country: United Kingdom
Year: 2018
Length: 240'
Production Status: completed


Many years in the making, this bold follow-up to Mark Cousins'' The Story of Film uses hundreds of film clips to show how movies are made. Comprised of 40 chapters, it asks questions like how a great opening shot is done, how to frame an image, how to introduce a character, how to film sex, dance and death, how work and love are portrayed in cinema, and how the genres of comedy, melodrama and sci-fi work. Uniquely, all these questions are answered using only clips from films directed by women. The famous female directors are included, but so are scores of forgotten women from every period in film history and every continent. Women Make Film is a revealing eye-opener, a celebration of the art and craft of cinema, and a j''accuse to film history.
