Description


This book illustrates a distinctive lineage of critical interventions in moving image culture and in the public sphere through the trajectories of a small number of film and video organizations established between the 1970s and the early 1980s in Western Europe and North America mainly by women and still operative today. 

The six case studies examined (Drac M gic, Women Make Movies, Groupe Intervention Vid o, Leeds Animation Workshop, bildwechsel, Centre Audiovisuel Simone de Beauvoir) have maintained a discrete yet continuing presence within an audiovisual industry and a cultural system dominated by institutionalized and corporate forms of production and distribution. Their longevity - quite a rarity in the independent circuit - makes a strong case for the sustainability of feminist/LGBTQ media activism in the public sphere, in spite of its low-key profile. 

This volume will be of interest to academicians of history and communication studies, feminist and LGBTQ topics, and gender-related cinematic culture.
