Definitely need to add Wadjda (2012) by Haifaa Al-Mansour to the list! :)
what about fill the void?Movie that had a grat festivals run+a debut film by his director, Rama Burshtein.
There is also "The slut" by Hagar Ben Asher.
Anyone able to point me in the direction of some animation shorts done by women? 1940's-70's?
Why didn't you include their first names?
great list!. there are a couple of omissions... namely that of Liliana Cavani and Catherine Breillat!
Comprehensive as always Kenji, thanks!
Valeria Sarmiento, Marilú Mallet and Alicia Scherson should at least make your longer list!
Inspiring, wonderful list! Great efforts!
I need to watch "Madchen in Uniform."
Kenji, your list is amazing, thanks.
yeah i know u're not a girl.it was a bad joke i guess.whatever.. but u're insane in your lists there's always so many detailed information. really good work.
This isn't an exhaustive list, there wouldn't be room for everyone. I'm not a girl.. And i've already included Liv Ullmann in the upper list, with 2 films, may pick one for the main lower list
nice...but i'm sure there r lots of women that we forget...hmmm. Liv Ullmann for ex. she was at the same time a directer too you know..nice though. you go girl!:)
Great list but what about Patty Jenkin's "Monster."
Good stuff, Dimitris. I was wondering how long it would take you
ha, if Virginie Wagon and Kathryn Bigelow deserve to be on this list Kenji, then Tonia Marketaki, Frieda Liappa and Antouanetta Angelidi should receive a medal of abstinence :P 3 championing voices, equal to many ladies from the list above that although you haven't seen their films as with.....Amy Heckerling (!), i trust you'll believe in my accolades for them ;)
Yes, Fish Tank is excellent and on both lists here
Fish Tank, Fish Tank, Fish Tank (by Andrea Arnold)
yes, it's on my longer esentials list but sadly i've not seen it, so till then it can't be added to my favourites list
My favorite movie directed by a woman is Sisters, or the Balance of Happiness (German: Schwestern oder Die Balance des Glücks), by von Trotta, 1979. Of the handful of von Trotta movies I've seen, this if by far the best.
Anna Karina has directed two films "Vivre Ensemble" (1973) and "Victoria" (2008). She is slated to direct her third one in Quebec this year.
Actually, yes i had noticed there seem to be an unusually high percentage of female fans, which is great. My dog Kiki is a babe magnet, but as i'm married...ha, you may make some new acquaintances here then.
Very clever, Kenji. This list is a chick magnet! ;P
"And i’ve long imagined the Bulgarian Binka Zheliazkova’s The Attached Balloon (1966) to be one of the neglected treasures of the world" just wait till you watch Liappa's films ;)
Are the Karina films any good? One has a low rating on imdb, the other has had less than 5 votes, and i know little about them
Godard muse Anna Karina has written, directed and starred in two films, Living Together (1973) and Victoria (2008).
Wonderful list! Thank you.
