Points of Resistance Women, Power, and Politics in the New York Avant-garde Cinema, 1943-71 (2d ed.) Press Reviews

Recent feminist film theory has often called for a new kind of nonpatriarchal, resistant filmmaking practice. Rabinovitz convinces us that, in the case of Deren, Clarke, and Wieland, this practice has been articulated strongly since the 1940s. -- Donald Crafton, author of Emile Cohl, Caricature and Film
