Abstract

Looking for more films that pass the Bechdel Test? Political Animals: The New Feminist Cinema is a fiercely political overview of a new generation of feminist filmmakers from Sophie Mayer. Turning its attention away from commercial film, this book offers an alternative narrative for understanding contemporary feminist cinema beyond the mainstream. Although the number of films covered – nearly 500 – prevents more detailed analysis of individual examples, Sofia Ropek Hewson salutes this comprehensive introduction to feminist cinema, which should contribute significantly to the watchlists of those interested in contemporary film, gender and feminism.
