Filming Desire: A Journey Through Women's Film directed by Marie Mandy (France, 2000, 60 min, Documentary)
"In this bold documentary Marie Mandy asks the question: how do women directors film love, desire, and, especially, sexuality? In rare interviews with many of the leading women directors working in the world today - including Sally Potter, Agnes Varda, Catherine Breillat, Doris Dorrie, Deepa Mehta, Moufida Tiatli, Safi Faye, and Jane Campion - FILMING DESIRE: A JOURNEY THROUGH WOMEN'S CINEMA directly engages the sexual politics of cinematographic choice.
Powerfully illustrated in film clips from their own work, the directors discuss the reality of an explicit women's point of view, the possibility of a women's cinematic language, and the desire in their films to 'fantasize and dream a new image of themselves'. While discussing how their depictions of sexuality and relationships are correctives, they also reflect on the sexual differences in selection of image, shot, and story.
