TIFF Lightbox 4 Wed, May 1, 2019 3:30 PM
In 1990, the National Film Board made waves with Five Feminist Minutes, a series of short films produced by the trailblazing Studio D, the world's first all-woman production unit. As the NFB celebrates its 80th anniversary, four contemporary directors pick up the thread, accompanied by four to-be-announced titles from the original series.

What gets lost when female voices are stymied during the creative process? Pairing intimate interviews with absurdist re-enactments, Joyce Wong crafts a tartly subversive look at patriarchy and racism in the film industry.
