“Williams's book is exemplary in tying together the multiple personal, political, social, and artistic strains running through Dulac's oeuvre. Although it may be surprising that we are only now getting the first book-length consideration of Dulac's career, it was well worth the wait.”--Afterimage
"Williams delivers primary scholarship of the highest order. Her jargon-free prose blends biographical narrative, institutional histories of Belle Epoque feminism and syndicalism, economic and industrial considerations, as well as close analyses of films that survived and reconstructions of those that did not."--French Review
"Williams's study is a pleasure to read, a model of feminist film history, and an achievement that suggests many avenues for future research."--French Studies
"Within the burgeoning realm of archivally-based feminist film historiography, especially around early cinema, it is the singular achievement of Tami Williams's study of the career of Germaine Dulac that it manifests similar lessons about biography and offers us a thick rendition of a life that was so consequential in so many domains yet little known in its extension to most researchers. . . . The importance of Williams's book lies in the ways it goes beyond Dulac's life and career per se to offer a veritable picture of independent French cinema between the wars and especially to use the one life as a lesson about the possible place of women within that broader picture."--Film Quarterly
"An authoritative, scholarly survey of one of France’s pioneer female filmmakers. Germaine Dulac: A Cinema of Sensations is a fascinating text for cinephiles and Francophiles alike. It may render any subsequent biographical attempts at Dulac as redundant when compared to such a comprehensive study."--Shepherd Express
The first in-depth historical study of the trailblazing filmmaker and feminist and her work
