Women Make Film
A New Road Movie Through Cinema
2 September — 21 October 2021
From 2 September, Eye presents Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema by Mark Cousins. An epic 14-hour road trip through the history of cinema, seen through the eyes of the greatest female directors.
Last year, Eye presented the film programme Women Make Film, an alternative world history of cinema featuring women in the lead role. Women have played an important role from the early days of cinema, as cinematographers, filmmakers and sometimes also producers.
Eye also offers a specially designed course to accompany the programme. On seven consecutive Wednesday evenings from 8 September, Eye shows two-hour episodes of the 14-hour series, introduced by film journalist Dana Linssen. After each session, Eye screens one of the films highlighted earlier that evening. This film, too, will be introduced by Dana Linssen.
