TOMAIM, Cássio dos Santos; NUNES, Francine  e  MACHADO, Naiady. Documentary production in southern Brazil from the perspective of female filmmakers (1995-2010). Intercom, Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Comun. [online]. 2020, vol.43, n.2, pp.185-202.  Epub 04-Set-2020. ISSN 1980-3508.

From a universe of more than 74 women documentarians which were identified by document production mapping, in southern Brazil, during the years 1995 to 2010, we selected seven female directors so that, from semi-structured interviews, we would know who these women are and how they think about the production, distribution and exhibition of the film documentary in Brazil. The partial results presented are part of broader research that aimed to characterize contemporary documentary production in southern Brazil, seeking to understand where, what, how and who produces in the region and where and how these films are shown. Most of the female filmmakers interviewed have a degree in Social Communication, where they often got exposed to and involved with cinema and the audiovisual field. It is a consensus among these filmmakers that the main difficulty in producing in the region is linked to financial dependence, but they recognize that without public contribution the history of the documentary would have been different in this period. Thematically only two of these filmmakers focus on women characters and women’s issues, the rest bet on the singular view of the female filmmaker, where their views are marked by the experience of being a woman.
