    I saw the stage version of Threepenny Opera a long time ago. I hope you saw my review of The Big Sick. That New Yorker article provides good background.

    Then people would see it and it'll be in a thread dedicated to the topic.

    Maybe Agnès Godard is the most known, but there are a dozen more, as you'll see if you Google "women cinematographers." I wonder what awards they have won, apparently plenty also.

    I have The Spirit of the Beehive on my Netflix list (on Criterion Collection DVD).

    Googling I find The video isn't very good - the soundtrack is faulty.

    And she specializes in Asian studies and Japanese as well as Spanish, unusual. It seems I should have seen The Spirit of the Beehive but I have not. Have you written about it?
