Women's Films--A Critical Guide.
Indiana Univ., Bloomington. Audio-Visual Center.
Annotations of 192 recent films which address themselves to subjects of particular interest to women are presented in this reference guide. The guide is intended for use by women's film festivals, consciousness-raising groups, women's studies programs, and guidance programs. Issues considered by the feminists, professional television film crews, and film production companies include: How have individual women coped with changing traditions and values? What is the women's movement? How does society discriminate against women? Twenty specific topic areas are identified by the authors, including abortion, child care, job discrimination, history, ironic commentaries, rape, self-defense, third-world women, and working mothers. The guide is divided into four parts, each of which contains annotations of films evaluated by a different committee. The authors identify the reviewers as a film screening committee at Indiana University (87 films); the Extension Media Center, University of California, Berkeley (20 films); the Indiana University Audio Visual Center (74 films); and private film distributors (11 films). Distribution and technical information is provided with each film description. A bibliography noting information on women's films not annotated in the catalog and a sample film evaluation form are included in the booklet. (Author/DB)
