Seminar susținut de Dr Ana Grgić (International Advanced Fellow – Star UBB), găzduit de Janovics Center for Screen and Performing Arts Studies
Based on ongoing research, this seminar will explore the role of women in early cinema in the Balkans and Eastern Europe through the case study of the stage actress and director Mărioara Voiculescu (1885 – 1976), the first Romanian woman filmmaker. A close reading of available press materials from 1913 sheds more light on Voiculescu’s filmmaking activities situating these
within the broader social and cultural context at the time. Considering that all of Voiculescu’s films have been lost, the talk will also reflect and problematise contemporary film history methodologies for conducting archival research and for writing early cinema historiographies of the Balkans and Eastern Europe.
The seminar will be held online via Zoom, and followed by a short Q&A.
