This Woman's Work: How Gender Shaped Cinema from Behind the Scenes

Anita Loos


Women have been instrumental to the development of cinema since the dawn of motion picture production, though most traditional histories have done little to highlight their influential and myriad contributions to the labor and artistry of filmmaking. This series will shift the popular approach to film history away from the auteurist mindset located in the director’s chair to instead focus on additional key areas of expertise, including screenwriting, producing, editing, cinematography, costume design, story editors and secretaries.
