feminist media maker
After taking this class i believe the purpose behind most "feminist" work is equality. To me a feminist filmmaker is someone who creates a piece of work with the intention of drawing attention to an issue and or coming up with ways to fix it. I don't think one needs to call themself a feminist filmmaker in order for them to produce a feminist product. One of the key quailities of feminism is getting away from lables so if an artist doesn't like that title i feel it should not be imposed upon them, but we should still take there work seriously.
Rutgers Univresity has a great exhibition going on now that i would consider to represent feminist values
I think the film, Real Women Have Curves is a feminist film that is often over looked. Another movie that cam out not tool long ago that i would consider a great feminist film is, Pam's Labyrinth. I feel a lot of time movie viewers are not aware when they are watching what could be concidered a feminist piece. As there is a certian stigma that goes a long with feminism i think that certian viewers tend to avoid feminist films.
I believe that feminist filmmakers have done a lot of great work and have helped so many people. It is clear that feminism is about so much more than bra burning!
