One of the cinematic highlights of 2020 was the TCM broadcast premier of Mark Cousins’ 14-hour docuseries, Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema. Now the series comes to Kanopy for those who do not have the cable channel or have picked up the Blu-ray set from Cohen Media Group. Even better, a bevy of the 305 movies featured in Women Make Film can be found online as well. If you’re looking for a place to start, I have included links to my previous Women Make Film pieces below. Happy hunting.
