Paulla Ebron: "On Looking: feminist film criticism in the late 20 century."
Some critics have pronounced feminist film criticism as “dead.” Yet film criticism provides critical tools for viewing and enhances the pleasures of watching. Through feminist film criticism, we learn to analyze films through the layered insights of feminist theory. Professor Ebron's presentation uses one film, J. Dash’s Daughters of the Dust as an occasion to reflect upon the generative contribution of feminists to noticing in cinema.
