Life After ‘Winter’s Bone’: Debra Granik on Finding J. Law and the Plight of the Female Director

Life After ‘Winter’s Bone’: Debra Granik on Finding J. Law and the Plight of the Female Director | PARA DOX | Scoop.it
“When society’s been structured one way, nobody gives it up easily,” says Granik. “So, a lot of females have to operate and create using the ‘Trojan Horse Method.’ You have to stick to your vision, make it small, and then slowly let it detonate; slowly let them see that there’s other content that could be interesting. These opportunities are never given to us.”

Michèle Bernstein - Alle Pferde des Königs - bei Edition Nautilus

Michèle Bernstein - Alle Pferde des Königs - bei Edition Nautilus | PARA DOX | Scoop.it

 »Michèle Bernstein benutzt Stile, wie andere Leute Autos stehlen, um damit illegale Rennen zu fahren.« 

Friederike Anders's insight:

"HOME: There's a figure who I feel is always lurking in the background of the situationist saga and that's Michele Bernstein. I get this feeling that she played a key role within the movement, but I can't specify exactly what it was she contributed.
RUMNEY: You can't put your finger on it because she won't tell you and she wouldn't thank me if I told you. Since she was my wife, I've got to respect her wishes. I can tell you various little things. She typed all the "Potlatchs", all the "IS" journals and so on. One of the curious things about the IS was that it was extraordinarily anti-feminist in its practice. Women were there to type, cook supper and so on. I rather disapproved of this. Michele had, and has, an extraordinarily powerful and perceptive mind which is shown by the fact that she is among the most important literary critics in France today. A lot of the theory, particularly the political theory, I think originated with Michele rather than Debord, he just took it over and put his name to it."
