Klappentext

Since Nell Shipman Wrote And Starred In Back To God's Country (1919), Canadian women have been making films. The accolades given to such film makers as Patricia Rozema (I've Heard the Mermaids Singing, When Night is Falling), Alanis Obomsawin (My Name Is Kahenttiiosta, Walker), and Micheline Lanctot (Deux Actrices) at festivals throughout the world in recent years attests to the growing international recognition for films made by Canadian women. With Gendering the Nation, the editors have produced a definitive collection of essays, both original and previously published, that address the impact and influence of a century of women's film making in Canada. In dialogue with new paradigms for thinking through the relationship between cinema, nation, and gender, Gendering the Nation seeks to situate women's cinema through the complex optic of national culture. This collection of critical essays employs a variety of frameworks to analyse a range of different cinematic practices from narrative to documentary to the avant garde.
