She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World
Features more than 80 photographs and a video installation by 12 contemporary Iran and Arab world women artists. The artists include Jananne Al-Ani, Newsha Tavakolian, and Rania Matar among others. Their provocative work ranges from fine art to photojournalism. Their work provides insights into political and social issues, including questions of personal identity and exploring the complex political and social landscapes of their home regions in images of great sophistication, expressiveness, and beauty.
Women in Film is an interview that digs deep into Alice Guy-Blanché’s story. Guy-Blanché was the first female filmmaker in history and her story is being represented in an upcoming documentary. The director, Pamela Green, and the article’s author, Elizabeth Lynch, begin by discussing Alice Guy-Blanché and her career in film. The two also discuss their research approach and the process of developing Blanche’s life and career into a documentary. Guy-Blanché’s story provides another perspective on filmmaking as a whole and being a woman artist.
