Women Filmmakers in Russia
A film by Sally Potter
England, 1990, 51 minutes, Color, DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99196
Since Lenin's fervent embrace of cinema in the 1920s, more women have worked in the film industry in Russia than in the West. This fascinating documentary - produced during glasnost and prior to the dissolution of the USSR - includes interviews with actresses, critics, technicians and leading directors Kira Muratova and Lana Gogoberidze. Clips from films such as Larissa Shepitko's WINGS are contrasted with more traditional representations of women in "Soviet" cinema. WOMEN FILMMAKERS IN RUSSIA (aka I AM AN OX, I AM A HORSE, I AM A MAN, I AM A WOMAN) was directed by Sally Potter (ORLANDO). A Triple Vision Production.


    "Abounds with insights about the links between art and culture. Engaging portraits of smart and courageous women make us burn to see more of their works."
    Claudia Gorbman
    Univ. of Washington, Tacoma
