“There were many women like Eve amongst the rising visibility of Gay Liberation and the Women’s Movement, but this was the first time they had been put on screen [in Holland.]” — James Gent, WE ARE CULT
Pioneering feminist Nouchka van Brakel was Holland’s first successful female filmmaker, in the same league with Lina Wertmüller and Margarethe von Trotta. Her provocative, yet compassionate work comes to North American screens for the first time in brand-new restorations! The female faces of TURKISH DELIGHT (Monique van de Ven) and LAST TANGO IN PARIS (MARIA SCHNEIDER) star in this groundbreaking look at 1970s custody battles from a very European perspective.
