    The Female Gaze Now through August 9

    We're not covering this show of camerawomen at Lincoln Center but it's a rich, great series of movies and worth knowing about these important cinematographers, more of whom are French than other nationalities. They do fabulous work, and incidentally this is a great set of movies!

    36 films by female cinematographers from across the globe!

    "With the far-ranging and much-needed new series 'The Female Gaze,' the Film Society of Lincoln Center shines a light on a tremendous body of work by female cinematographers from around the world . . . The directors of photography featured here shatter those antiquated and gendered roles, one captivating frame at a time."
