Editorial Reviews

An entertaining and revelatory secret history of Feminist Art, !Women Art Revolution deftly illuminates this under-explored movement through conversations, observations, archival footage and works of visionary artists, historians, curators and critics. Starting from its roots in 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details developments in women s art through the 1970s and explores how the tenacity and courage of these pioneering artists resulted in what is now widely regarded as the most significant art movement of the late 20th century.

For more than forty years, artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson (Teknolust, Strange Culture) has collected a plethora of interviews with her contemporaries and shaped them into an intimate portrayal of their fight to break down barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large. With a rousing score by Carrie Brownstein (Sleater Kinney, Portlandia), !WAR features Miranda July, The Guerilla Girls, Yvonne Rainer, Judy Chicago, Marina Abramovic, Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, B. Ruby Rich, Ingrid Sischy, Carolee Schneemann, Miriam Schapiro, New Museum founder Marcia Tucker and countless other groundbreaking figures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable piece of history - not to be overlooked! May 27, 2012

I loved the film! It is an excellent documentation of this critical piece of women's art history that is often overlooked. Thank you for preserving a valuable part of my own history and reminding me of the important links to the bigger picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars A critical love letter to art, women and feminism. October 28, 2013
By is me
This is a great film. When I saw it with some friends at a theater our eyes welled up multiple times. The director was a part of the early feminist movement in the arts and is not trying to create an unbiased or neutral film. This is told from the inside, from her particular position, which gives the work its own kind of authenticity. It is not claiming to be about the entire movement, so perhaps your favorite artist is left out. And some of the newer "feminist" artists haven't really stood the test of time. Even so it's important to remember that in just one small generation women and women artists have come a long way, and simultaneously have not come far enough. Young artists would do well to see this, both to know their history and to know when they are repeating it. The footage was shot over the years and reflects an artist' budget at times (not a hollywood budget). Within those constraints it is well done and should not be missed.

I saw this documentary at the Berlinale and just had to get it. Wonderful first hand accounts from all of my favorite feminists and art theorists.
