The Female Gaze at the Film Society of Lincoln Center
Film buffs still have a place to go here in Lincoln Square. The Film Society of Lincoln Center is always premiering and hosting fantastic series year-round. Starting this week, the Film Society is spotlighting amazing works of accomplished international female cinematographers highlighting "the female gaze" in film. Aptly titled The Female Gaze, this series will run from Thursday, July 26 through Thursday, August 9 and feature films that showcase the camera work of such greats as Agnès Godard, Natasha Braier, Kirsten Johnson, Joan Churchill, Maryse Alberti, Ellen Kuras, Babette Mangolte, and Rachel Morrison. 
The Female Gaze will open with a double feature of unforgettable collaborations between Agnès Godard and Claire Denis. Then on Saturday, July 28, cinematographers Natasha Braier, Ashley Connor, Agnès Godard, and Joan Churchill join Film Society audiences to discuss their careers, experiences in the film industry, and their interpretations of the Female Gaze in a free talk, sponsored by HBO®. In total, the series will feature 36 films shot by 23 women. The program includes blockbusters (Creed), independent American fare (SwoonEternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), selections from the canon (Jeanne Dielman, 23 Commerce Quay, 1080 Brussels), contemporary international arthouse titles (Tokyo SonataThe Headless WomanHoly Motors), rarities ripe for rediscovery (La Captive), and two sneak previews: The Miseducation of Cameron Post and I Think We're Alone Now, both prizewinners at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The complete lineup is here
