Mark Cousins’ – WOMEN MAKE FILM: A NEW ROAD MOVIE THROUGH CINEMA – out on Blu Ray 4 Disc Boxset

Women Make FilmWOMEN MAKE FILM: A NEW ROAD MOVIE THROUGH CINEMA (PG) COUSINS, MARK BLU RAY 4 DISC BOXSET £44.99
Women Make Film: A Road Movie Through Cinema follows in the footsteps of Mark Cousins’ The Story of Film: An Odyssey, to give us a guided tour of the art and craft of the movies.

Using almost a thousand film extracts from thirteen decades and five continents, Cousins asks how films are made, shot and edited; how stories are shaped and how movies depict life, love, politics, humour and death, all through the compelling lens of some of the world’s greatest directors?—?all of them women.

This epic, five years in the making, is made up of forty “chapters” narrated by Tilda Swinton, Jane Fonda, Adjoa Andoh, Sharmila Tagore, Kerry Fox, Thandie Newton and Debra Winger.

Released on BFI Player and other digital platforms and in a 4-disc Blu-ray box set on 18 May 2020.

We hope that a screening of Women Make Film will take place at BFI Southbank later this year alongside a season of films by some of the women featured within the documentary. Please check for updates.
