Paper Planes

Launched in 2013, Filmme Fatales is an Australian zine exploring places where films and feminism intersect – their modus operandi -‘humour’.

We recently got our hands on the latest issue of Filmme Fatales and couldn't wait to share with you. Filmme Fatales issue #7 begins with a hilarious ‘Non-boring sci-fi primer for the Modern Viewer’ by Sinead Stubbins. Stubbins makes her love for sci-fi vivid with her accurate summary of a genre that is generally deemed exclusive to the male species. After a good laugh and film history lessons galore, comes a fascinating lineup of features, interviews and reviews. Greer Clemens identifies the spaces that are characters by themselves in the film ‘Pretty in Pink’ while Alexandra Donald feeds us the hope and need for more queer movies in ‘You will Remember This’. In ‘Iris Fills the Room’, Rachel Wilson reviews the documentary ‘Iris&rsquo with extraordinary sensuality and the issue furthers into a profile on ‘Gayby Baby’ by Maya Newell. Elsewhere, James Cameron indulges on the accidental turn to feminism that his films take and Clem Bastow and Eloise Grills engage in an anecdotal piece with ‘A Girl Walks into a Cinema Alone’. Mae Whitman picks three films and sprawled over the intuitive writing are caricature frames of the films themselves – an invitation to immerse yourself into the exact moment Mae wants you to.

In the couple of hours it may take to read the seventh issue of Filmme Fatales, we can guarantee that you will find yourself gliding past a spectrum of emotions and come to appreciate the efforts of the team of Filmme Fatales in putting together this fantastic publication - with opinions that have a footing in experience, reviews that are borne of a palpable emotion, and which profiles people and films like they are works of art.

Filmme Fatale has been an invigorating indulgence.
