9780809321209: Women Filmmakers of the African and Asian Diaspora: Decolonizing the Gaze, Locating Subjectivity

An examination of the works of six contemporary black and asian women filmmakers. It also includes a detailed introduction and a chapter entitled "Other Voices", documenting the work of other black and asian filmmakers. The book analyzes the key films of Zeinabu Irene Davis, "one of a growing number of independent black women filmmakers who are actively constructing an 'oppositional gaze'"; British filmmaker Ngozi Onwurah and Julie Dash, two filmmakers working with time and space; Pratibha Parmar, a Kenyan/Indian-born British black filmmaker concerned with issues of representation, identity, cultural displacement, lesbianism and racial identity; Trinh T. Minh-ha, a Vietnamese-born artist who revolutionized documentary filmmaking by displacing the "voyeuristic gaze of the ethnographic documentary filmmaker"; and Mira Nair, a black Indian woman who concentrates on interracial identity.
