“The first European language spoken in the New World, including the United States, was Spanish not English. The Latino Experience film series is a cinematic testament to that often inconvenient but unavoidable historical fact and reality."
“Clear-eyed, compassionate and compelling, the documentary The Price of Freedom efficiently unpacks and debunks the myths it posits the National Rifle Assn. of America has deployed to further its all-guns-all-the-time agenda and foster a culture war."
THE FEMALE GAZE IN DOCUMENTARY FILM - AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE By Lisa French
"The Female Gaze in Documentary Film – an International Perspective makes a timely contribution to the recent rise in interest in the status, presence, achievements and issues for women in contemporary screen industries. It examines the works, contributions and participation of female documentary directors globally. The central preoccupation of the book is to consider what might constitute a ‘female gaze’, an inquiry that has had a long history in filmmaking, film theory and women’s art. It fills a gap in the literature which to date has not substantially examined the work of female documentary directors. Moreover, research on sex, gender and the gaze has infrequently been the subject of scholarship on documentary film, particularly in comparison to narrative film or television drama. A distinctive feature of the book is that it is based on interviews with significant female documentarians from Europe, Asia and North America."
