This month should be fun! We’re going to be taking a dive into some of the talented women directors of the silent era, both famous and obscure, and see what we can learn about their life and times.
As an appetizer, here are some of the women-directed films I have already covered:
- Wonderful Absinthe (1899, Alice Guy)
- Won in a Cupboard (1914, Mabel Normand)
- Mabel at the Wheel (1914, Mabel Normand)
- The Curse of Quon Gwon (1915, Marion Wong)
- ’49-’17 (1917, Ruth Ann Baldwin)
- Parabola (1937, Mary Ellen Bute)
- The Nose (1963, Claire Parker)
- Here and the Great Elsewhere (2012, Michèle Lemieux)
