Using archive footage and home movies, Terra Femme examines the history and experiences of women travellers.
From women psychics called upon to search for missing explorers to those women who travelled to foreign lands, competed in cross-continent car travel, becoming travellers, tourists, explorers and ethnographic filmmakers.
Terra Femme examines the often unknown stories of these women and their voyages, searching through old films and archives to understand these tourers and their movements, exploring and speculating on what these women saw and the wider sense of the traveller’s gaze manifested in the archival material.
A beautifully realised essay film, fascinating and illuminating.
