The Cinematic Impressions of Germaine Dulac

Suffragette, journalist, theorist and feminist filmmaker Germaine Dulac (1882-1942) fervently pushed the boundaries of silent cinematic art, playing an integral role in the development of the first avant-garde in Europe and beyond. Though Dulac’s Parisian upbringing allowed for early encounters with the arts, her first professional foray was as editor for the suffrage journal La Française and the radically feminist La Fronde, both socially-activated publications of the 1910s. Her work as a writer produced interviews with and biographies of the most influential, powerful women of her time, and served to strengthen her connections to both the art world and the political sphere.

This September, UCLA's Film and Television Archive together with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy will be presenting 13 of the artist’s long- and short-form works from each stage in her exquisite career.


All films written and directed by Germaine Dulac.
Language: French

Playing at the Billy Wilder Theater from September 15 - September 23, 2018.
