Mediterranean Cinema Through the Eyes of Women

Abstract

Visions of Struggle in Women’s Filmmaking in the Mediterranean (2010), compiled by Flavia Laviosa, contains ten articles about the struggles experienced by women as seen through the eyes of female directors. The articles examine films with different narrative styles (fictional, experimental) made to express the efforts of women to be free from oppression in Southern Europe, the Balkans, North Africa, and the Middle East. All the articles take a feminist point of view on diverse modernization experiences and their effects on women.
