Women film makers have had something of a raw deal and to address this, Miranda July(pictured below) has created the concept that is Joanie 4 Jackie. It's something of a video chain letter among lady directors. It seems to be restricted to those in the US though I may be reading the somewhat oblique descriptions from the wrong perspective.

Drawing further, selections of films are compiled in Co-star Tapes which are curated by inspired, cinematic women. The latest curator is Astria Suparak (pictured in the post title) and her Joanie 4 Jackie Co-star Tape is the third titled Some Kind of Loving featuring works from Karen Yasinsky, Jane Gang, Jennifer Reeder, Stephanie Barber, and Peggy Ahwesh.

The Yerba Buena Center for The Arts in San Francisco will be featuring some work and an "explanatory video" regarding Joanie 4 Jackie in their exhibition, The Way That We Rhyme: Women, Art & Politics until June 29, 2008. Chain letters and Co-star Tapes are for sale and are available by emailing
