She has written on children and cinema in her 2003 volume Cinema's Missing Children and in a series of essays on representations of children in the work of women filmmakers. She has written on uses of cinema in contexts of intimate and historical responses to loss and pain, in her most recent monograph Love, Mortality and the Moving Image, in her studies of directors Alain Resnais and Atom Egoyan, and in ongoing work on Marguerite Duras. She has recently finished a new book The Reclining Nude about contemporary women filmmakers and photographers working in Paris, including Agnès Varda, Catherine Breillat and Nan Goldin. She is also planning a short volume on the films of Céline Sciamma.
