LOGLINE

The female gaze exists. The term was coined in 1975 by film theorist Laura Mulvey to highlight how women were and still are considered as mere objects in film, existing only through the male gaze. The female gaze is a means of refocusing on women and female body onscreen as proper subjects. What is its purpose? To change our way of looking, to feel the emotions of women on screen and to share their experience. Through clips, archival materials and testimony from contemporary filmmakers, the documentary aims to create a new history of cinema through the female gaze while generating a poesis of images: that is, a new shared visual language.
