At the start of the 20th century, Alice Guy-Blaché was experimenting with film making and audio. For ten years she was the only female filmmaker in the world. Until the birth of sound in cinema, women who created movies were part of the norm. Since then, the female representation in the world of cinema has dropped significantly over the decades. Despite films directed by women gain huge acclaim, it is very rare for its artists and directors to gain recognition in media or award nominations.
With a history as rich and overflowing with gorgeous movies as their male colleagues, we decided to make this list with a couple of fantastic movies with women directors to highlight the phenomenal work and their creators. A few older movies, a few newer, more known and less known. Nevertheless, they are all lovely.
