For three decades, Filmhouse screens have been my solace, my magic carpet rides.  What have I chosen to put on them?  Films that have humbled or thrilled me. An epic war movie set in Belarus, a dazzling Finnish dreamscape, a haunting, a jazzy American drug den, a never-before-seen-in-Scotland Bulgarian satire. 

There are few movie stars here, but there are visionary filmmakers - people doing bold things with stories, emotions and images.  These visionaries - Larisa Shepitko, Binka Zhelyazkova, Shirley Clarke, Pirjo Honkasalo, Kira Muratova, etc - should be as well known as Ingmar Bergman or Martin Scorsese, but they aren’t.  Let’s change that.  

Let’s celebrate these great directors, who are all women.  Thank you, Filmhouse.  You’re one of the world’s great cinemas.
