"Jill Johnston: October 1975 was conceived and executed in a feminist manner through collaboration, flexibility of roles, equality of participation, and active engagement of spectators' emotions. It employs a variety of cinematic techniques, including the use of hand-held cameras, jump-cuts, voice-overs, and the filming of real people in uncontrolled situations."
