Shooting Women

THU, OCT 11 / 7 pm
DIR. ALEXIS KRASILOVSKY
2008 | USA | 54 MIN

Introduction by Shauna Townley

Shot over a period of six years, Shooting Women celebrates the amazing talent and unflinching spirit of image-making women from the sets of Hollywood and Bollywood to the war zones of Afghanistan. With wide-ranging access and rich diversity, Shooting Women offers insight from top directors of photography like Ellen Kuras (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Sandi Sissel (Salaam Bombay!) while giving voice to stories of groundbreaking women like African-American Jessie Maple Patton, who sued the American union and networks for the right to work. From historic footage of Mao’s travels from China’s first camerawoman, to the secretly filmed beatings of women in Afghanistan, viewers are offered a glimpse of how women behind the camera are changing the world.

“Its scope is breathtaking and the women’s voices riveting…. Brings women cinematographers around the world clearly into view.” – KATHLEEN MCHUGH, Professor & Director, UCLA Center for the Study of Women

With nearly two decades of experience behind the camera, having worked in film, television, documentary and portrait photography, Shauna Townley has worked with dozens of different camera systems producing professional results. Before joining IATSE 669, Shauna studied Film Theory at the University of Manitoba and Cinematography and Lighting at Vancouver Film School. She returned to Winnipeg where she was immediately hired on her first feature film as a Camera Trainee.
