TCM Presents Women Make Film spans 120 years of filmmaking and features 100 classic and contemporary titles from female filmmakers from around the globe, plus the U.S. TV Premiere of the 14-part docuseries from Mark Cousins:
WOMEN MAKE FILM: A NEW ROAD MOVIE THROUGH CINEMA, 2019, 60 min. Dir. Mark Cousins. Most films have been directed by men, but for thirteen decades, and on all six filmmaking continents, thousands of women have also been directing films – including some of the best. What techniques did they use? What can we learn about cinema from them? This 14-part documentary explores how films are made, shot and edited; how stories are shaped and how movies depict life, love, politics, humor and death, all through the compelling lens of some of the world’s greatest directors – all of them women. “An invaluable film appreciation workshop … it’s exciting to encounter so much originality from filmmakers I didn’t know, and to realize just how much of the world of cinema remains for me to discover.” – Peter Debruge, Variety.
