This chapter expands the discussion of the transformed “independent” environment and its new possibilities by examining the narratives of two female independent filmmakers. The chapter looks at how the postauthoritarian cultural environment-which resulted from the symbiosis between the KIFA leadership and the state-has created space for female independent filmmakers to contradict and challenge gendered activism and its representations. Through critiquing and negotiating with the elite and male-dominated activist filmmaking world, a new crop of women filmmakers with distinct political and artistic sensibilities and visions has emerged.

Keywords:   women filmmakers, activist culture, gender, elite, new venues, feminist films
