In response to Mark Cousin’s film, Women Make Film: A New Road Movie through Cinema (2020), we are inviting contributors to submit a blog inspired by the film.
Wanda (Barbara Loden, 1970): Two Responses
The first two blogs in our series, Women Make Films, inspired by Mark Cousins’ 2020 film, Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema, consider Barbara Loden’s 1970 film, Wanda. Fjoralba Miraka journeys on the “road” of Cousin’s road movie by examining how a feminine sensibility can be viable within a masculine generic category. Angela Martin, meanwhile, interrogates Cousins’ framing of Wanda through “Tone, Meet Cute, and Framing,” and asks us to look further at Loden’s realisation of the film.
