Abstract:

This article is an attempt to bring to international attention the issue of gender in Slovenian cinema and thus, in turn, to force this issue in its domestic context. It proceeds in several steps. First, it sketches the history of film in Slovenia and draws attention to some important female figures and their often ignored, if not suppressed contribution. It also outlines the present climate in Slovenian film culture and points out that gender has not been properly addressed by film scholarship in Slovenia. Next, it considers how the notions of national cinema and transnationalism apply to Slovenian cinema; it argues that contemporary Slovenian cinema seems to be evolving from a transnational to a national cinema. Finally, it demonstrates how its actors, particularly the marginalised women, provide a corrective to this anachronistic course of development. It concentrates on the work of Maja Weiss and her affinity with borders and border-crossing as a case in point.
