Executive Producer, Tilda Swinton said; “Women have been making films for eleven decades. Sustaining and informing and inspiring the cinema from its earliest days. We have always had the opportunity to recognise this wealth, screen it, celebrate it and build on it’sits root system. Here’s a starter pack, a booster jet, a treasure trove :trove: the gift of a new confidence in the boundlessness of cinema history and in the emboldening promise of her bounteous legacy.”
