Filmmakers' showcase #02 : Bonnie Kreps : A woman's film aesthetic

Documentary. "Bonnie Kreps, one of the founders of radical feminism in Canada, here traces her development as filmmaker since 1969. Pre-eminent in this development is the emerging aesthetic which comes from a feminist value system, as distinct from the prevalent masculine one which now imbues most filmmaking. With humour, personal examples and illustrations from her films, she pinpoints some of the key elements of a woman's film aesthetic -- both in the process of making a film and in the end product itself." Includes excerpts from AFTER THE VOTE, PORTRAIT OF MY MOTHER, MOUNTAIN DANCE and THIS FILM IS ABOUT RAPE.
