Paris Was a Woman

Sunday December 10
Sunday December 10
Director: Greta Schiller
1996 / 75min / 16mm

The extraordinary convocation of women artists and writers who came together in Paris’s Left Bank in the early years of the 20th century—among them Gertrude Stein, Djuna Barnes, and Janet Flanner—is brought to vivid life in Schiller’s exhaustively researched documentary, written by Andrea Weiss. An invigorating breath of the Parisian air in an unprecedented era of female bohemia. “Time travel to golden ages doesn’t exist, but documentaries like Paris was a woman—with their interviews, home movies, archival film, and photographs—are the next best thing.”—The New York Times
