Women Behind the Camera

 

See also the companion website: http://www.womenbehindthecamera.com for further details.

 

This global documentary, based upon Krasilovsky's book of the same name, explores the lives of camerawomen in Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Iran, Mexico, Russia, Senegal, and other countries in a way never seen before.

From the secret films by camerawomen of Taliban beating Afghani women, to historic footage by China 's first camerawomen of Mao's travels through the Chinese countryside… From the playful narrative of a Russian filmmaker who learned the art from her father, her choice of career told as a love story
, to rural India, where subsistence-level women are taught camerawork as a means of empowerment, to the glowing young Senegalese camerawoman willing to climb onto a man's shoulders – literally – to get her subject, Professor Krasilovsky shows us a world of beauty, courage and technical skill.

"It is a great film and so important, that it should be mandatory for every woman. I hope the movie will travel far and it's good to know that not only the women in the audience but the men learn something too."
- Michaela Von Schweinitz, Alliance of Women Directors

"If I put so much importance in the images of the film, it's because I love images. This work of being a cinematographer is for me a fabulous job."
- Agnès Varda, Director/Videographer, interviewed on digital video by Alexis Krasilovsky, Paris, France, July 2001
