Great Women of Film celebrates 30 fascinating women who have made a difference in the motion picture industry, encompassing filmmakers and film editors, directors and actors, composers and cinematographers, and everyone in between. This extraordinary guide features dozens of personal interviews, entertaining anecdotes, and personal reflections about the inner workings of the movie industry. Each woman selected tells her own story about how she got into the film business, her real-life work experiences, her individual thoughts and visions about cinema, and how her work and career in the industry may differ from those of men. What's more, the book includes each woman's filmography and clearly describes the tasks and responsibilities of every crew member who works on a film. Well-documented and visually stunning throughout, the dazzling photographic portraits of the women in this book are all shot by renowned international photographer Mika Manninen in collaboration with Helena Lumme. Great Women of Film is also part of a photographic exhibit to be held at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences during the 2002 Oscar season, as well as a documentary that will premiere at the Academy Theatre during the exhibition. It will be edited to shorter segments for television and streaming on the Internet.
