What critics are saying about the
Women Directors in Cannes Competition Box Set
“As a Kelly Reichardt fan, I can’t recommend [Roads to nowhere] enough.”
– Cláudio Alves, The Film Experience
“Erudite and casual, Portraits of Resistance will force readers into…running back to watch every Sciamma film to see what they missed.”
– Alfred Soto, Film Critic
You Were Never Really Here: A Special Issue “allows for a deeper appreciation of a brilliant piece of art. It’s what we want more often from critical analysis — a conversation with the art and its creators — but so rarely get.”
– Brian Tallerico, rogerebert.com
Roads to nowhere: Kelly Reichardt’s broken American dreams offers the first in-depth, 360-degree look at Reichardt’s process.
Interviews with Reichardt and her collaborators on many projects, including cinematographer Christopher Blauvelt (who has worked with her on every film since Meek’s Cutoff), author Jon Raymond (who co-wrote all the Oregon films), and costume designer April Napier (since Certain Women).
The book brings you onto the set with behind the scenes images, and will kickstart your thinking on her films through insightful essays.
Portraits of resistance: The cinema of Céline Sciamma is an essential companion to Portrait of a Lady on Fire and the essential guide to Céline Sciamma.
Portraits of resistance contains interviews with the cast and crew of Portrait of a Lady on Fire, as well as essays on the film and Céline Sciamma’s career.
This was the first book ever published to be dedicated entirely to Sciamma’s work! She’s been making amazing films for over a decade now, so we’re proud to honour her work in this way.
In You Were Never Really Here: A Special Issue, discover how Lynne Ramsay achieved the complete sensory overload and immersion of the film.
Hear from the people who made it, from the script to the final edit — Ramsay, cinematographer Tom Townend, editor Joe Bini, sound designer Paul Davies, and producer Jim Wilson.
You Were Never Really Here: A Special Issue is the only full-length book on Lynne Ramsay’s work and process.
