Top10 #52FilmsByWomen 2016
I’m a complete fail when it comes to commitment, so I didn’t want to commit to the #52FilmsByWomen project because I wasn’t sure I was gonna pull it off without stressing. Halfway through the year, however, I was counting the movies made by female filmmakers and I was doing better than I was expecting. Strangely enough, my female film intake decreased when I started to pay more attention to it. By the December I was hurrying, because I didn’t want to count the shorts that I had seen (2). I also was trying to have a clean list, so I didn’t want to rely on co-directed films (5), by I didn’t make it.
I watched a total of 55 films directed by women from all over the world~
These are my Top10~
The Special Mentions~
Emmanuelle Bercot’s Standing Tall (La Tête Haute), Sian Heder’s Tallulah, Patricia Rozema’s Into the Forest, Barbara Kopple’s Miss Sharon Jones!, Anna Biller’s The Love Witch, Leena Yadav’s Parched [Trailer] and Andrea Arnold’s American Honey!
10. The World of Us (우리들) dir. Yoon Ga-Eun (윤가은)
There is no girl and/or woman in the world that wouldn’t get this movie. Yoon Ga-Eun’s The World of Us follows the lives of two girls that find each other’s company, but are torn apart because the world of girl emotions are so complicated when you’re this young.
