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.
