Behind the Lens with Jill Craigie

One of Britain's earliest female documentary makers : Jill Craigie 1911-1999

A poster for her 1946 film 'The way we live', which was a film documenting the aftermath of the blitz in Plymouth. This short film had major success; influencing how Plymouth was re-built after the war.

A still image from Craigie's 1951 hit 'To be a Woman'. This black and white masterpiece, highlights the role of a woman in and out the home and is a powerful short film showcasing feminism in the 1950's and the importance of equal pay - something that is still a topic of discussion 70 years on.
