The erased history of women in cinema has only recently begun to emerge since the rediscovery of the films of Ms. Alice Guy-Blaché, the first film director (of either gender!), and more and more information on the suppressed narratives of women filmmakers has been being uncovered by film scholars ever since. Join one such pioneering film scholar, Montclair's own Professor Cordelia Siporin (best known for having restored the lost plot of the first Asian American film, 1916's The Curse of Quon Gwon) as she explores the missing, erased, and too-long-overlooked work of female filmmakers then and now, exposing the differences between the ways male filmmakers have historically portrayed women, and the empowering portrayals that come out when women are able to portray themselves.
