Daughter Rite is the link between 'direct cinema' documentaries and the later hybrids that acknowledged truth couldn't always be found in front of a camera.
Scandalous in its day for bending the rules of representation to enlighten its audience about filmmaking, this film has a lot to teach those of us hooked on reality TV too. Citron's documentary inquiries into feminism, women in the trades, and feminist approaches to media representation are time capsules that merit re-opening.
Introduced by Anna Navas, Peninsula Arts film programmer.
To celebrate International Women's Day 2018, the University of Plymouth’s Peninsula Arts and Plymouth Arts Centre have programmed a series of films, talks and events designed to bring women to the fore. To view the range of screenings and talks being hosted by Plymouth Arts Centre.
