This week’s podcast features a highlight from our Germaine Dulac retrospective, which concludes today. Dulac was a feminist and socialist artist of the 1920s and ’30s whose bold experimentation helped legitimize cinema as an art form. 

During the series, we hosted an extended conversation with Germaine Dulac scholar and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee professor Tami Williams, Columbia University professor Jane Gaines, and Rutgers University professor Sandy Flitterman-Lewis to discuss Dulac’s pioneering artistry, her films’ political context, and her pivotal place in the history of cinema.
