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.
