Editorial Reviews

Collects 21 essays that represent a wide range of current film theory and illuminate some of the challenges feminist German filmmakers face. They consider the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexuality and discuss various kinds of films (narrative, documentary, art, and essay) from both West and East Germany before and after unification. Several essays treat films not only by well-known filmmakers but some whose work has not, until now, received much scholarly treatment. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
