Woman’s Work – A Salute to women filmmakers marginalized, overlooked and underpaid by the film industry, women filmmakers, upon finding their place behind the camera, produced the most provocative and groundbreaking of cinematic masterpieces. In this special series of films, The Cupertino Library Foundation and Blue Light Cinema devote six weeks in exploring the work of the world’s great women directors. You are invited to watch the films as they were meant to be seen – on the big screen – and later explore and discuss the work of these extraordinary filmmakers in a lively post-show discussion led by filmmaker and historian Mark Larson.
