In this paper, Marta and Matthew Hawkins explore female creativity and agency through the means of documentary filmmaking. Husband and Wife is an experimental documentary concerning one woman’s journey from Poland to London, England to reclaim the body and the dignity of her husband after his death. The authors/directors discuss the process of creating a space where the life of the characters and the life of the camera merge. This creative, feminist space is what the authors term, filmiation, and they regard it as a space of mutual influence between themselves, the protagonist and their documentary film.
