Turning its lens on the many neglected female directors who have brought their distinctive techniques and preoccupations to the seventh art, Mark Cousins' mammoth documentary is a necessary corrective to the male-dominated cinematic canon. Despite its unashamedly political premise, however, Women Make Film shows far less interest in detailing this history of exclusion than in celebrating the films themselves and the women who authored them, writes Danica van de Velde.
