This wide-ranging volume of new work brings together women filmmakers and critics who speak about what has changed over the past twenty years. Including such filmmakers as Margarethe von Trotta, Deepa Mehta, and Pratibha Parmar, and such critics as E. Ann Kaplan, this comprehensive volume addresses political, artistic, and economic questions vital to understanding the relationship of women to the art and business of filmmaking.


"Refocusing is an important collection of essays and ideas, one that teaches as well as inspires." -- Journal of Film and Video

"This is a great book. I'm sure that anyone who teaches women's cinema has felt the need for a book that brings the discussion of feminist theory up to date with current film practices." -- Mary Alemany-Galway
