The Smiling Madame Beudet

In the second part of the evening, we are showing The Smiling Madame Beudet, one of the first feminist silent movies in film history
 

La Souriante Madame Beudet (The Smiling Madame Beudet) is a short French impressionist silent film made in 1922,directed by pioneering avant-garde cinema director Germaine Dulac. It tells the story of an intelligent woman trapped in a loveless marriage and is considered by many to be one of the first truly feminist films.
