    Description Drawing on the work of philosopher Luce Irigaray, this
groundbreaking study intervenes in the debate around women and film. Women's
films can be seen as providing a new arena for the exploration of sexual
difference and patterns of representation and spectatorship. This timely
book analyses films such as *The Piano*, *Orlando*, *Antonia's Line *and *The
Silences of the Palace *in order to make the case that a feminine cinematics
is now emerging through the scene of women's filmmaking. Caroline Bainbridge
moves beyond the framework of textual analysis by making a compelling case
for the importance of contextual elements in contemporary women's cinema,
foregrounding issues of production, direction and reception.
