“What does the narrative of exploration offer women?”
Courtney Stephens’s live-narrated essay film resurrects archival footage shot by women in the 1920’s-40’s in an intimate time capsule of pure perspective. The amateur filmmakers construct their own narratives through personal diaries, dipping into private wanderlust and quietly reaffirming their agency and freedom.
