Shooting Women

USA, 2008

For 6 years, the documentary filmmaker Alexis Krasilovsky followed the lives of over 50 camerawomen: from journalists risking their lives in war zones, to feature DP’s, shooting armed men escaping in slow motion; from secret films by camerawomen of the Taliban to historic footage by China’s first camerawoman of Mao’s travels through the Chinese countryside; from the narrative of a Russian filmmaker who filmed the fall of the Soviet Union to rural India, where subsistence-level women are taught camerawork as a means of empowerment. Shooting Women reveals the history of camerawomen around the world and brings a world of beauty, courage and technical skill to the screen. The film celebrates not only the survival of pioneer camerawomen in a men’s territory, but also the young generation of camerawomen, advancing a new vision.
