Filmmaker, Stephanie Rothman was the first director to be contracted under Exploitation producer, Roger Corman’s production company, NEW WORLD PICTURES, formed in 1970. Rothman was also the first of a small handful of women to work behind the camera for Corman. This first production was STUDENT NURSES, which Rothman also co-produced and co-wrote with her husband, Charles Swartz. Working under particular constraints of the Exploitation genre, Rothman found ways to address inequality through incorporating issues of immigration, poverty and reproductive rights into the story, making this work unique in the catalogue of American feminist film. 35mm, Color, Sound, 89 min.
