Sois belle et tais-toi

Delphine Seyrig interviews 24 French and North American actresses, including Jane Fonda, Maria Schneider and Anne Wiazemsky, about their experiences as professional women in cinema, their relationships with directors and crew, the roles they have played and the demand to “be beautiful and shut up”. An illuminating film highlighting the stereotyping and alienation of women by the industry, presented for the first time in the UK in its restored version.
