This chapter examines the feminist collaborative practices integral to Lena Dunham, television and film celebrity, showrunner, director and star, as illustrated in her breakthrough film Tiny Furniture (2010). Featuring family members and friends as well as their art and ideas (mother Laurie Simmons’ photography, for example), the film has characteristics of the autobiographical documentary and engages self-reflexively with the multiple communities that make up intersubjective and intertextual experience, including intergenerational feminisms.

Keywords:   Lena Dunham, Laurie Simmons, auteur, intersubjectivity, intertextuality, feminism
