ReFocus: The Films of Doris Wishman

Alicia Kozma and Finley Freibert


This volume—the first ever devoted to director Doris Wishman—covers her vast filmography, and is inclusive of her less discussed later films, hardcore films, and nudist films. By situating Wishman within larger contexts and movements in film history including women’s filmmaking, avant- garde and experimental cinema, and genre film, the volume considers the cultural, historical, and industrial significance of Wishman. Special focus is paid to gender studies, genre studies, film narrative, feminist history, queer history, and adult film history.

Keywords: Doris Wishman, Feminist Film Studies, Genre Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Adult Film History, Cult Film, Exploitation film, Women filmmakers, Women directors
