SUFFRAGETTE DERBY OF 1913

GB 1913, P Gaumont Graphic, Print b/w, 35mm, 5 min, silent, BFI National Archive

This newsreel footage captures a milestone event in the campaign for women's suffrage: the trampling to death of activist Emily Davison under the hooves of the King's horse at the 1913 Epsom Derby. […] A hundred years on, her motives are still debated and the film can tell us nothing about her state of mind; although she must have been aware of the scale of press coverage that would be present on the day […] (Holly Hyams, Make More Noise! Suffragettes in Silent Film).

Die spätere Fotochefin des Spiegels spielt in ihrem Kurzfilm Programmhinweise eine adrette Fernsehansagerin, die beim Moderieren plötzlich über Orgasmusschwierigkeiten und ihr persönliches Unglück als Frau in einer männerdominierten Gesellschaft spricht: „Ich weiß nicht, ob ich mich nicht doch lieber den Ansprüchen der Männer fügen soll, denn schlimmer als die Unterdrückung ist die Isolation.“ (Christoph Twickel, Die Zeit, Nr.41/2017)

La Souriante Mme Beudet
MADAME BEUDETS SONNIGES LÄCHELN

F 1922, D Germaine Dulac, SC André Obey, based on a stage play by Denys Amiel and André Obey, C Maurice Forster, Paul Parguel, P Charles Delac, Marcel Vandal (Film d’art), Cast Germaine Dermoz, Alexandre Arquillère, Jean d’Yd, Madeleine Guitty, Yvette Grisier, Raoul Paoli, Armand Thirard, Print b/w, 35mm, 38 min, silent, French and German INT, EYE Film Instituut Nederland

Humdrum married life in the provinces. Monotonous days; empty time that the sensitive wife spends in the house, or with friends and pleasures as stupefying as the husband himself. She takes little escapes into society magazines and the fantasies they inspire, yearns for the death of the house tyrant, stages it – and fails. Resignation in the grey streets of the small town: the theatre of marriage continues. Due to this film’s feminist reception, it became one of Dulac’s best-known and most widely-screened works. (Heide Schlüpmann, Germaine Dulac. Der Film ist ein weit auf das Leben geöffnetes Auge, 2017)

Although May Spils may have been an autodidact when it came to filmmaking, that didn’t keep her very first film, Das Porträt, a clever and humorous short colour film about the difficulties the artist herself faces when attempting to create a self-portrait, from being honoured at the International Film Week Mannheim back in 1966. (Sabine Schöbel, programme booklet for Aufbruch der Autorinnen II, 2016)

F 1984, D Sarah Maldoror, Print colour, DVD, 5 min, French and Creole OV with electronic German SUB

„Sarah Maldoror […] is respectfully regarded as the matriarch of African cinema (she was the first woman of color to make a feature film). For her, filmmaking was a weapon for struggle and liberation from the very beginning of her experiences in cinema.“ (African Film Festival New York, Biograpy Sarah Maldoror)
Her film Toto Bissainthe portraits the Haitian singer and actress of the same name. Along with the likes of Samb Makharam or Timité Bassori, Maldoror and Bissainthe were part of the 60’s ensemble of renowned theatre group „Les Griots“.

In 1979, Iranian Women invite the American feminist Kate Millett to celebrate March 8, the International Women's Day, in Tehran. On March 7, the religious leaders announce that women have to wear the Islamic veil. From March 8 to March 13, women and liberals demonstrate in the streets against the veil. A crew of four French feminists filmed these historical events before being expelled by the mullahs. (Claudine Mulard)
