Critical Moments: A history of film magazines (part 6)
From Women and Film to Camera Obscura
Critical Moments: A history of film magazines (part 6). By Richard Armstrong
“We support the liberation of workers, blacks, third world people and children…for under every oppressed male/colored/worker there usually lies a woman.” So ran an early editorial in the magazine Women and Film. Set up in 1972, Women and Film aimed to analyze images of women in mainstream cinema, rediscover ‘lost’ women filmmakers, and to report on the growing activities of feminist filmmakers and festival organizers. The magazine responded to a major shift in film culture, one which has generated some of the most provocative and revealing writing on cinema of the last thirty years.
