For the first time, twenty French women filmmakers are brought together in front of the same camera to talk about their profession and their status in the movie industry. They respond to questions from Julie Gayet, such as: Do women have a different viewpoint? Can we identify a specific women’s cinema that is distinctly different from films made by men? Are there differences or specific ways that women from older and younger generations work on set? Julie Gayet challenges her interviewees by evoking contrasting perspectives, such as feminist and misogynous viewpoints, to broaden the debate.
