In this collection of essays presented by Gwendolyn Audrey Foster, along with a detailed filmography and bibliography, ten film scholars explore the themes with which Akerman is preoccupied: sexuality and lesbian identity, subjectivity, alterity, quotidian reality, the mother-daughter relationship, and Jewish diasporic identity, among others.
The contributors -some of the key figures in contemporary feminist moving-image discourse- include Maureen Turim, Sandy Flitterman-Lewis, Jennifer M. Barker, Ivone Margulies, Catherine Fowler, Janet Bergstrom, Ginette Vincendeau, Judith Mayne, and Kristine Butler.
