 Female Gaze: Charu and Maiden Check Out Female Filmmakers

Image

I think making films deals with something more important than a role and/or being only a woman director. I only try to be the best I am as a human being.
- Claire Denis


Thanks to Trip for the banner <3




The plan's really simple. Maiden and I will be using this thread to explore a few female filmmakers that have been on our radar for a while. We have a preliminary list of filmmakers all ready to go but if things go well, we'll expand the list gradually. Suggestions are more than welcome, especially if you can make a compelling case for them.

We'll be discussing 3 (or thereabouts) films per filmmaker and we won't be starting our discussion till we're done with all 3 films. The hope is that discussing all 3 in combination might allow us to get a broader perspective of the filmmaker's style, thematics and so on. The discussions will take place in real-time over on this very thread hopefully with broader participation.

A priori, we have no particular reason to think that gender issues are likely to come up. It's certainly not our intent to approach these films/filmmakers with that lens taking precedence. However, if it does come up, we're not opposed to discussing it per se.

We plan on keeping the thread updated well in advance with the names of the filmmakers and specific films in the hope that others can watch and join in the discussion. Pls contact me if you have availability issues and I'll do my best to help.

Now, Don't pretend you're not turned on :shifty eyes:

      Image

    Kira Muratova was born in 1934 in Bessarabia (present-day Moldova). After studying philology at Moscow
    State University, she enrolled at the State Filmmaking Institute, where her teachers included legendary
    Soviet director Sergei Gerasimov (now the namesake of the Institute). She graduated in 1959, and since
    1961 has worked out of the Odessa Film Studio. Muratova's unmistakable style and her penchant for "small"
    themes of humanitarianism and emotional relationships emerged in her earliest films. Her early [films] were
    shelved by the censor until 1987 due to their intensely personal, "non-civic-minded" themes and their auteur
    formal features. With the end of censorship, Muratova quickly won renown at home and abroad, is one of
    the undiscovered classics of the Soviet 60s and 70s and a leading figure in contemporary art cinema. Her
    artistic vision has remained intact in her post-perestoika works, all of which have earned awards both in
    Russia and at international festivals.
    (More here.)

Charulata and I are going to start the series by viewing and discussing four films by Kira Muratova. I've been itching
to see more by her ever since LEAVES convinced me to watch Passions last year. I'm hoping to gain some context for
that absurdist comedy and am eager to see her delve into darker territory. I did consider having us watch something
less frivolous in place of Passions, but I'm hoping it will provide value as contrast. Plus, I'm looking forward to hearing
how Char compares it to something like Daisies, which she was able to appreciate and I wasn't.

Of course, we want to hear from others, too, so we won't begin the actual discussion for a few days, in order to give
anyone who's interested a chance to see a film or two first.


Update: The Muratova discussion begins here.

Not sure if this is a knock on her as a filmmaker or because she's transgender. Either way :(

Only one film to discuss, though, right? Or does everything she's done back when she was Larry count as well? Anyway, I should see Bound, but Speed Racer would probably not sit well with Maiden :(
All facetiousness aside, looking forward to this. I've seen one Muratova from her earlier period, but sadly there's no subs for that. I'll try to watch along but you know how it is...

I'm going to do my best to keep up with this thread by watching all of these films. I'm not great at discussion so I'm not sure how much I'll bring to the table though.

You really don't have to post walls of text or anything. Just letting us know if you liked the films or not and mentioning anything that stands out or that you think might be worth talking about more will make for great support <3.

I don't believe it! Netflix has two by Muratova now?! I didn't even think to check, because they'd had none when I last looked.

I've seen one Muratova from her earlier period, but sadly there's no subs for that.

Turns out I was wrong, and my half-hearted attempts to make subs for that one were finally supplanted by someone competent. Also, apparently, it was featured in The Story of Film. If you shall get that one (Dolgie provody, BTW), let me know, I've never really discussed it with anyone and I wouldn't mind a re-watch if I watch other Muratova films to go along with it.
