Description

This book illuminates some of the challenges feminist German filmmakers face and offers original insights into their filmmaking practices. It considers the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexuality as these are cinematically represented, and discusses narrative, documentary, "art," and essay films from both West and East Germany before and after unification. Several essays treat films by well-known filmmakers, including R.W. Fassbinder, Jutta Brückner, Ulrike Ottinger, Helke Sander, Helma Sanders-Brahms, Monika Treut, and Wim Wenders in ways that challenge the limits of major critical approaches in feminist film criticism today. Importantly, Triangulated Visions also offers suggestive and original analyses of works by filmmakers who, until now, have not received much scholarly treatment.

Review quote

"This is a book which really needs to be read, on the work of some of the most important artists working in cinema today." -- Gwendolyn Foster, University of Nebraska-Lincoln "The theories, films, and directors discussed here have been too seldom treated but are very important to film studies, German studies, and cultural studies in general. This book does a valuable service in redressing this neglect." -- Barton Byg, University of Massachusetts-Amherst "The topic of women in German cinema is undeniably significant in itself, and also of interest as an aspect of cinema studies and German literary/cultural studies. The inclusion of material on filmmaking in the former GDR and on documentary, along with more standard fictional films, as well as the filmmaker interviews and essays discussing a number of recent films, all make this volume particularly valuable." -- Ramona Curry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
