Paris Was a Woman

Buy Tickets


(1996) dir Greta Schiller w/Gertrude Stein, Colette, Alice B. Toklas, Djuna Barnes [75 min; 16mm]
A film portrait of the creative community of women writers, artists, photographers and editors who flocked to the Left Bank of Paris in the early decades of the 20th century. Utilizing groundbreaking research and newly discovered home movies, PARIS WAS A WOMAN re-creates the mood and flavor of this female artistic community in Paris during its most magical era.

“Time travel to golden ages doesn’t exist, but documentaries like ‘Paris Was a Woman’ – with their interviews, home movies, archival film and photographs – are the next best thing.” – Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times
