Summary:
See Her is a found footage montage that identifies the issue of women’s representation in contemporary Hollywood film culture. It analyzes different ways that spectatorship develops through the division of the film into four sections of which three analyze film from the perspective of Laura Mulvey, Mary Ann Doane, and Linda Williams. These three sections also approach the representation of women as a sociological issue of oppression as discussed by sociologist Patricia Hill Collins. The last section serves as a speculative vision of the future of female representation in Hollywood Film Culture. While this film is critical on the current state of representation, it presents hope for a more equal future.
