Femmes méditerranéennes dans les films et la télévision : Kadija Leclère

Femmes méditerranéennes dans les films et la télévision : Kadija Leclère | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Avec Le Sac de Farine, Kadija Leclère propose un premier film forcément personnel, qui fait écho à sa propre histoire et à ses œuvres précédentes.

Kadija Leclère a débuté sa carrière comme comédienne, avant de se lancer avec succès dans la direction de casting. Depuis le début, elle est passionnée par la réalisation, et tiraillée par le besoin de raconter ses propres histoires. Elle investit ses propres deniers dans la production de son premier court métrage, Camille en 2002, puis réalise professionnellement deux autres courts, Sarah (2007) et La Pelote de Laine (2010). Le Sac de Farine est son premier long métrage.

Women Are Making Opera. And It’s Not Easy. | Gender and art | Scoop.it

This month, the Metropolitan Opera is performing Kaija Saariaho’s “L’Amour de Loin,” the first opera written by a woman that the company has produced since 1903. We asked 10 composers to reflect on this conspicuous gap, and on what it means to be a woman creating opera today. Read what they had to say while listening to excerpts from their works.
