Summary:"Cinematic Howling presents a refreshingly unorthodox framework for
feminist film studies. Instead of criticizing mainstream movies from
feminist perspectives, Hoi Cheu focuses on women's filmmaking itself.
Integrating systems theory and feminist aesthetics in his close
readings of films and screenplays by women, he considers how women
engage the process of storytelling in cinema. The importance of these
films, he argues, is not merely that they reflect women's
perceptions, but that they have the power to reframe experiences and,
consequently, to transform life."--BOOK JACKET.
