This volume of the series "Projections" focuses principally on the women in film, implicitly questioning if there is such a thing as an innate feminine essence in their professional performance. Altogether with the topic of collaboration as a strategy profited by women in this business, also stand out the issues of film distribution, publicity and nudity in female acting. However, this piece includes other writings on or by renowned names of cinema that do not forcefully relate to the title of this book. Contents: WOMEN FILM-MAKERS ON FILM-MAKING 1.
