Happy International Women’s Day! Here are 8 films from women around the world. To see more, be sure to check this list here that I have been compiling.
The Apple (Samira Makhmalbaf, Iran), The Arch (Tang Shu Shuen, Hong Kong), Mossane (Safi Faye, Senegal), Daughters of the Dust (Julie Dash, United States), The Girls (Sumitra Peries, Sri Lanka), The Brickmakers (Marta Rodríguez & Jorge Silva, Colombia), The Fourth Dimension (Trinh T. Minh-ha, United States), Sambizanga (Sarah Maldoror, Angola)
I’m giving you my word that there’s nothing, there’s no frame in my film, not a single one, that doesn’t come from me as a woman. I’ve never engaged in copycatting, never tried to imitate men.-Larisa Shepitko
