Q&A with Claudia Weill, director of Girlfriends | BFI Woman With a Movie Camera Summit
Posted on August 3, 2021 in Interviews by BFI
Director Claudia Weill joins talks to the BFI to discuss her landmark 1978 Girlfriends, one of the first (and still one of the best) films to authentically portray the complexities of female friendship and life in your early 20s. The underrated classic is a true ‘godmother’ to Girls, Frances Ha, Broad City and many other film and TV shows about young women trying to find their way. Hosted by Anna Smith. This Q&A originally screened as part of the virtual Woman With a Movie Camera Summit in 2021. Woman With A Movie Camera is powered by Jaguar and generously supported by Jane Stanton.
