Summary

Disruptive Feminisms provides a revolutionary new approach to feminism as a disruptive force. By examining a variety of films (Post Tenebras Lux, Craig's Wife, and Bright Days Ahead) and filmmakers who are not so obviously read as feminist or Marxist (Dorothy Arzner, Calin Peter Netzer, and Paul Thomas Anderson), Foster showcases their ability to disrupt and effectively challenge everything from class and racism, as well as sexism, ageism, and homophobia.
