Visions of Struggle in Women's Filmmaking in the Mediterranean, Hardback Book

Visions of Struggle in Women's Filmmaking in the Mediterranean Hardback

Edited by Flavia Laviosa

Part of the Comparative Feminist Studies series


This provocative collection elaborates a trans-cultural definition of being a woman in struggle.

Looking at the films of women directors in countries in the Mediterranean rim, this book spurs a contemporary discussion of women s human, civil, and social rights while situating feminist arguments on women s identity, roles, psychology and sexuality.

Although their methodologies are diverse, these artists are united in their use of cinema as a means of intervention, taking on the role as outspoken and leading advocates for women s problems.

Contributors examine the ways in which cinematic art reproduces and structures the discourses of realism and represents Mediterranean women s collective experience of struggle.
