Adaptation, Authorship, and Contemporary Women Filmmakers

4.11 - 1251 ratings - Source



Shelley Cobb explores film adaptations directed by women (often working with women screenwriters, producers, and sometimes editors) that foreground the figure of the female author. Through analysis of the films themselves, and their reception and discussion of the cultural and industrial contexts in which these films were released, she sees the figure of the woman author functioning as a representative of female agency. A lively discussion of costume dramas to women's films, the figure of the woman author comes to the fore as a key site for expressing the authority of the woman filmmaker.Berlant, Lauren, TheFemale Complaint: The Unfinished Business of Sentimentalityin AmericanCulture (Durham: DukeUniversity Press, 2008), Kindle edition. ...
