Abstract

“America’s Pioneer Female Filmmakers” is a special project of the Film Appreciation Society of the Department of Communication, Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. This short documentary explores the barrier-breaking, early women of cinema who you most likely haven’t heard of, despite their lasting mark on the films we enjoy today.
