Item description for Feminist Auteurs: Reading Women's Films by Geetha Ramanathan...

Feminist Auteurs examines a rich and diverse body of work that has received insufficient attention both in film studies and in feminist theory on film. Looking at individual films within the context of feminist film as a genre, Ramanathan examines film from diverse cultural traditions, while paying close attention to what might be regarded as feminist in different cultural contexts. The films chosen expand our ideas of feminism covering as they do film from Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the US. Full-length interpretations of twenty-four films, both older and contemporary, including Vagabond, India Song, Bhaji on the Beach, Chocolat, and Daughters of the Dust lay out a complete and powerful framework for reading women's film.

Reviews - What do customers think about Feminist Auteurs: Reading Women's Films?

Perfect for critical film studies  Mar 13, 2008
The clear prose and succinct ideas make this book perfect for feminist film courses or anyone seeking to hone their critical analysis of film. The book is a must for graduate students taking up women's studies or film studies. Ramanathan's prose is direct and insightful. Because the prose is so clear and accessible, this text ranks essential, right alongside of an important work like Alice Doesn't. I especially like the range of films discussed, specifically such complex films as Watermelon Woman. An entire course could work around this book--I plan to use it when I teach feminist film. I highly recommend it and wish it were required reading in basic film courses so that students might experience an excellent critical lens for regarding women's film.
