Women Make Film: Part 3 (2020)

Documentary 2h 57m

Sex, religion and politics are among the themes in the third programme of the documentary with a dazzling look at how women directors have filmed bodies, shown sex on screen, created some of the best films about religion and tackled politics from the silent era to the 21st century. Examples here include Leni Reifenstahl’s notorious The Triumph Of The Will, Kathryn Bigelow’s Strange Days, Catherine Breillat’s Fat Girl, Donna Deitch’s Desert Hearts, Lynne Ramsay’s Ratcatcher and Yuliya Sointseva’s Soviet fantasy The Enchanted Desna.
