The Distaff Side: Women Directors of the 70s. Supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
A photographer is stuck with small-change shooting jobs and dreams of success. When her roommate decides to get married and leave, she has to learn how to deal with living alone. Directed by Claudia Weill.
“One of the great cinematic injustices of the late 20th century is that while Woody Allenâ€™s name became synonymous with the neurotic artist living in New York City, Claudia Weill and her debut feature Girlfriends was largely forgotten. Long before Girls In The Big City became a common trope, via the films of Nora Ephron to Sex and the City and Lena Dunhamâ€™s Girls, Girlfriends was one of the first films to capture the nuances and complexities of female friendship and the frightening loneliness of freedom.” Katie Goh for Little White Lies: Truth & Movies.
