Summary

This edition of Projections brings together women working right across the spectrum of film-making today, through a collection of interviews, conversations and articles. There are contributions from actresses (Frances McDormand, Emily Mortimer, Anna Karina) and from directors: Lisa Cholodenko (Laurel Canyon), Katia Lund (City of God) and Susanne Bier (Open Hearts). There is a diary by Rebecca Miller about the making of her Sundance award-winning Personal Velocity; another Sundance winner, Tadpole, is discussed by its writer, Heather McGowan; there's an article by Allison Anders on one of the great films of the silent era, Linda, by Mrs Wallace Reed; a piece on Jean Renoir by the late and legendary critic Pauline Kael; and independent producer Rosa Bosch talks to legal genius Libby Savill. Also represented are women working in the oft-unsung divisions of film production, distribution and exhibition. Deeper into this Projections are diverse contributions from: Ingmar Bergman, reflecting on his own films as well as those of his favourite film-makers; the writing/directing duo of the award-winning British film, Lawless Heart; the brilliant young American director, David Gordon Green, and George Cukor's set designer, Gene Allen.
