Cinematic Howling presents a refreshingly unorthodoxframework for feminist film studies. Instead of criticizing mainstreammovies from feminist perspectives, Hoi Cheu focuses on women'sfilmmaking itself. Integrating systems theory and feminist aestheticsin his close readings of films and screenplays by women, he considershow women engage the process of storytelling in cinema. The importanceof these films, he argues, is not merely that they reflectwomen's perceptions, but that they have the power to reframeexperiences and, consequently, to transform life. A major contribution to feminist scholarship that will appeal toscholars of both gender and film, Cinematic Howling is writtenin an approachable and inviting style, full of vivid examples andattention to detail, which will suit both undergraduate and graduatecourses in gender, film, and cultural studies.
