Germaine Dulac (1882-1942) worked as a filmmaker, film theorist, journalist, and critic in France who experimented with the potentials of the film medium, making surrealist and impressionist works.  Madam Beudet is considered to be one of the first feminist films ever made.  It tells the story of a smart woman trapped in a loveless marriage.  Coquille is an experimental work that presents the erotic hallucinations of a priest, and Invitation au Voyage follows a married woman on a night out with a marine officer.
