I read something about She Monkeys not too long ago, but haven't heard of anything else :(

I feel bad that I hadn't heard of any of these til now. :/

Bonjour Tristesse said...

Don't worry, neither did I.

Beasts in Human Skin said...

They look like films that would win at the Tribeca Film Festival. I can't say that any jump out at me...

All very thought provoking especially She monkeys.

Looked up SheMonkeys, sounds interesting, someone described it as a female western, good work.

Bonjour Tristesse said...

Indeed it does sound interesting
