Inhaltsangabe: The first autobiography of an American female film director, "The Woman Director" tells the story of Jurgen Vsych, who decided to become a filmmaker at age two. She began shooting Super-8 film at age four and made her first "proper" film at age six, financing the venture with baby-sitting money and editing the film with her father's toenail clippers.
A woman decades ahead of her time, Vsych's never-ending search for financing led her to take jobs as a cellist, elementary school bodyguard, detective, movie-theatre usher, butler and bagpiper - experiences she used as material for her films. Vsych's quest took her to Scotland, where she became the first filmmaker ever to win the Prince Charles Trust Award. "The Woman Director" tells how one woman succeeded in a male-dominated profession without selling out, succumbing to drugs, or going (too) mad. Possessing the enthusiasm of Auntie Mame, the Presbyterian Dudley Do-Rightness of John Glenn, the daring of Chuck Yeager, the wit of Groucho Marx, the artistic rebelliousness of Beethoven and the fortitude of Seabiscuit, Vsych discovered just how low the glass ceiling is for women seeking the most coveted position on the set. "The Woman Director," based on Vsychs 17,256-paged diary, is a masterpiece of comic prose, celebrating a gladiatress of independent films who, in 30 years of filmmaking, never once batted a single eyelash at a man to make her films.
Über den Autor: Jürgen Vsych made her first film at age 6. Her films have been shown at 40 film festivals in 28 countries.
"Pay Your Rent, Beethoven," her 27th featurette, was made in Glasgow and won the Prince Charles Trust Award. It was distributed in Scotland, paired with "Slacker" and "Delicatessen." "$on for Sail," featurette #28, aired on Britain's Channel Four and on America's P.B.S. Her feature debut, "Ophelia Learns to Swim" is now available on DVD.
Vsych's journal was included in the book "World Cinema-Diary of a Day." She also wrote, directed, produced and starred 38 plays and 110 one-act plays. She has written a feature-length screenplay of "Pay Your Rent, Beethoven," as well as five other feature comedies. Jürgen is also a professional bagpiper, and her films are distinguishable by their eclectic soundtracks.
Vsych recently finished a five-month stint as Ralph Nader's campaign photographer and videographer, during which she directed the famous Nader-Bush-Kerry virtual debate, "Ralph Nader Crashes the Two Parties." She is currently writing a book about Ralph's campaign.
