Dr. Williams, an internationally-recognized expert on Germaine Dulac and on early cinema, is publishing the first monograph on long-neglected French film director Germaine Dulac (1882-1942). Dulac was a socialist and feminist filmmaker, theorist, journalist and critic identified with the early twentieth century Impressionist film movement and with Surrealist film. Her films include: La Souriante Mme Beudet (The Smiling Mme. Beudet} (1922/23); L’Invitation au Voyage (Invitation to Travel) (1927); and the Surrealist classic, La Coquille et le Clergyman (The Seashell and the Clergyman) (1928), which preceded Salvador Dali and Luis Buñuel’s Un Chien Andalou (1929). Dulac also led the Parisian federation of film clubs, which helped promote younger filmmakers, and she taught film courses. View the flyer here.
