This book discusses the figure of Woman in Lars von Trier's distinctive cinematic productions from 1996 to 2014. It takes the notorious legacy of violence against women in von Trier's cinema beyond the perceived gender division, elevating the director's image above being a mere provocateur. By raising fundamental questions about woman, sexuality, and desire, Elbeshlawy shows that Trier's cinematic Woman is an attempt at creating an image of a genderless subject that is not inhibited by the confines of ideology and culture. But this attempt is perennially ill-fated. And it is this failure that not only fosters viewing enjoyment but also gives the films their political importance, elevating them above both commendations and condemnations of feminist discourse.
