Reviews"Michele Meek’s book is a welcome and important addition to the growing list of anthologies about women filmmakers…but what makes it special is that it is about the true pioneers of independent American women’s film, written and edited by those who were part of it." —Debra Zimmerman, Executive Director of Women Make Movies "This is a rich and exciting volume that draws attention to the indispensable contributions that women filmmakers have made to American independent cinema. Featuring profiles of and interviews with many groundbreaking directors, it gives voice to female artists whose experiences will inform and inspire the next generation of image-makers." —Michele Schreiber, Author of American Postfeminist Cinema: Women, Romance and Contemporary Culture;Co-editor of Indie Reframed: Women’s Filmmaking and Contemporary American Independent Cinema
