Dogwoof and Hopscotch Films have released the first trailer for Mark Cousins’ 14-hour documentary “Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema,” which will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this month.
Narrated by actresses Tilda Swinton, Jane Fonda, Sharmila Tagor, Adjoa Andoh, Kerry Fox, Thandie Newton, and Debra Winger, the film has been divided by Cousins into five parts for screening in Toronto from September 7th to 11th. The first four installments run three hours apiece and the final section runs two hours.
Described as a film school through the eyes of women, “Women Make Film” uses more than 700 clips from 183 female filmmakers to tell the history of women’s integral role in the development of the art of film.
A four-hour teaser first installment, narrated by Swinton, screened at last year’s Venice Film Festival.
