Christine Gledhill on Women & the Silent Screen X (May 2019)

Christine Gledhill looks back at last year’s Women & The Silent Screen Conference, which was held at the Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, in May 2019.

“The Conference’s theme, ‘Sisters’ proved a versatile organising concept, expanding the reach of women’s film history in different directions, with a consequent broadening of film historiography more generally. As a concept, “sisterhood” brought a feminist lens to bear on the concept of creativity, till recently largely captured by the image of the singular, generally male, artist-director, as source of original creative vision.”
