Citations de Gail Singer [en anglais]

« My whole perception of how relationships between men and women work was formulated by the movies. Men could do whatever they liked. So could women, as long as they were at home. (They could cook, clean, write letters, wait for their father, boyfriend, husband to get home. Wait longer.) Men had power and women did not -- unless they were bad. That made me want to be bad! Later it made me want to make movies. »
-- Gail Singer (source)

« Studio D [at the National Film Board of Canada] made me confront and define myself as a feminist. It provided an intense feminist environment and there were very few places like that. »
-- Gail Singer (source)

Citations sur Gail Singer [en anglais]

« [Beryl] Fox has been outspoken in recent interviews about her commitment to helping women get ahead in the industry. Fox has acted on that commitment already, securing a trainee director position for Gail Singer, a ten-year practitioner of documentary filmmaking. [...] She has yet to direct a feature or to attempt a drama of any kind, but she seems a likely candidate for the major step into feature directing. Singer came to filmmaking with a commitment to social change through the use of cinema, and in ten years has polished her craft and broadened her interests. There are few other women in English Canada who have such extensive experience as directors in the private sector. »

« Gail Singer (b. 1946) is one of the few Canadian women filmmakers able to make a living in independent documentary production, and she has been a committed advocate of feminism and socially progressive issues. She began as a researcher and assistant in the late 1960s, but quickly established herself as a director of intelligence in social documentaries on mercury poisoning in Canada's waterways, native cultures, arctic oil spills, battered women, breastfeeding, abortion, obstructive government bureaucracy, and children of divorce, as well as several films about artists. She has worked at various times with the CBC and Studio D, but she manages to maintain an independent profile in Canadian film culture. She has often worked with women as principal crew members [...]. »
