In Her Voice: Women Directors Talk Directing (Volume 1) | America on Film | Shooting Women | Feminist Auteurs | Women Filmmakers in Early Hollywood | The Guerrilla Girls' Bedside Companion to the History of Western Art | Women's Cinema, World Cinema | Feminism at the Movies | The Longman Anthology of Women's Literature
From the blockbusters of the Hollywood studios to emerging voices from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Laos, we learn of women making films in traditionally male-dominated areas such as action, fantasy and horror. With wide-ranging contributions from countries with mature and nascent film industries, Celluloid Ceiling demonstrates that economic and technological changes are creating new opportunities for women film directors everywhere.
With contributions from Africa, Latin America, Europe, USA, Asia and India, chapters on new voices in Japanese and Middle Eastern cinema, the book also covers women directors working in TV, and reminds us of the first woman director, Frenchwoman, Alice Guy BlachÃ©. Exploring the rise of the independent film sector including the horror aficionados the Soska Sisters, Celluloid Ceiling asks whether economic and technological change will work to the advantage of women in film.
Celluloid Ceiling follows in the footsteps of Supernovaâs Women Make Noise, which lifted the lid on the widespread and destructive misogyny that still plagues the rock music world.
