Daughter Rite
A film by Michelle Citron
1978, 53 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99331
"Daughter Rite is a classic, the missing link between the 'direct Cinema' documentaries and the later hybrids that acknowledged truth couldn't always be found in front of a camera lens. Scandalous in its day for bending the rules of representation to enlighten its audience about filmmaking, DAUGHTER RITE has a lot to teach folks hooked on reality TV, too. Citron's documentary inquiries into feminism, women in the trades, and feminist approaches to media representation are time capsules that merit re-opening."
-B. Ruby Rich, author of " Chick Flicks: Theories and Memories of the Feminist Film Movement"

Includes special bonus feature, WHAT YOU TAKE FOR GRANTED, also by Michelle Citron.


    "A technically stunning achievement."
    Vincent Canby
    New York Times

    "The beauty of Citron's subject and of her treatment is the more personal it becomes, the more political it be-comes. Every woman who has a mother ought to see this film."
