From Portland’s Walk of the Heroines to London’s streets, Professor Maggie O’Neill (University of York) invites filmmaker and Professor Jan Haaken to join her on a walk that re-traces a walk Haaken developed with colleagues in Portland in honour of inspiring women.
Feminists Walking the City invites viewers on a journey through London’s streets in search of images of the city’s heroines beginning in Tavistock Square with Virginia Woolf and closing with Emmaline Pankhurst in Victoria Tower Gardens, near the houses of parliament; and they find so few! Filmed by Nelli Stavropoulou, directed by Jan Haaken and Maggie O’Neill the documentary combines archival footage, walking methods and new forms of cinematic storytelling.
