Summary "Gendering the Nation is a definitive collection of essays, both original and previously published, that addresses the impact and influence of almost a century of women's filmmaking in Canada. Embracing new paradigms for understanding the relationship of cinema to nation and gender, Gendering the Nation seeks to situate women's cinema through the complex optic of national culture. This collection of critical essays employs a variety of frameworks to analyse cinematic practices that range from narrative to documentary to avant-garde."--Jacket
