Who Does She Think She Is?

A Portrait of Female Artists


"From the producing team that won an Academy Award for Born Into Brothels comes Who Does She Think She Is?, a film that examines some of the most pressing issues of our time: parenting and work, partnering and independence, economics and art. This gorgeously photographed film follows five female artists as they navigate the economic, psychological, and spiritual challenges of making work outside the elite art world.

From Hawaii's Big Island to the suburbs of Ohio, from New York City to the deserts of New Mexico, we watch as these women, ranging in age from 27 to 65, fight to honor their vision and their families every day. Interviews with experts like Riane Eisler (The Chalice and the Blade), Maura Reilly (Sackler Center for Feminist Art-Brooklyn Museum), Courtney E. Martin (Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters), Leonard Shlain (The Alphabet vs. The Goddess) and the Guerrilla Girls add a cultural context for these women's uplifting journeys. It is not accolades they seek; it's simply the radical opportunity to live whole." - kanopy.com
