MOYRA DAVEY, Les Goddesses
(2011, USA, 61 min)

Moyra Davey’s film focuses on the life story of Mary Wollstonecraft, Eighteenth-century British writer, philosopher, and advocate of women’s rights. Davey uses this ‘muse’ to weave together the characters who inhabit her external and inner worlds, both real and imagined. Slowly through the piecing together of images and language, and through the act of reading itself, a psychological portrait of the artist emerges.
