Women and Film, no. 1, 1972
This first issue of Women & Film is testament to Jean-Luc Godard’s towering presence in popular and political US film culture in the early 1970s. As the various engagements with his work demonstrate, he presents a conundrum for many feminist cinephiles as well as a potential model for alternative, more politically engaged filmmaking.
The 1960s counterculture permeates this issue, with frequent references to Marx, Mao and Marcuse, but also Wilhelm Reich and Third Cinema advocates Fernando Solanas and Octavio Getino. This issue features articles from both Siew-Hwa Beh and Saundra Salyer (writing as Dora Kaplan, in homage to French director Nelly Kaplan).
