Trailer – From Mirrors to Windows: The Artist as Woman

 

After three years filming behind the gallery walls of London, we can now reveal the intimate journey of the evolution of ten women, aged 22-82, as they become artists of the 21st century. We follow an international cast; from Cairo, France, Germany, Lebanon, the United States and the United Kingdom, all now living and working in London as they forge their careers in and around the heat of the blazing trail left by 20th century female art ancestry.

 In three acts, this fast-paced documentary feature puts the lens between art and life to reveal the dynamic and multi-faceted story of this enigmatic calling. In the negotiation between art and life, the artist emerges. 

Act 1 – Reflections in the Mirror

Act 2 – Breaking through Glass

Act 3 – The Artist Emerges
