An examination of Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen's independent and collaborative films and their intersections with feminism, film theory, and psychoanalysis.
This book examines renowned theorists Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen's independent and collaborative films, focusing how they intersect with feminism, film theory, and psychoanalysis.
The aim of the volume is broadly threefold: to encourage further study of Mulvey and Wollen's contributions to the theory and practice of experimental film; to draw attention to the value of their scrips as written texts; and to challenge the common misconception that their individual and collaborative filmmaking practices end at the close of the 1970s. The historical overview provided by Mulvey in her introduction underscores the sense that their individual and collaborative films were the result of sustained attempts to make political films under rapidly changing economic and political conditions.
