We’re spotlighting Tribeca selections helmed by women directors every day of Women’s History Month.

We begin with a seminal independent film that received a retrospective screening in 2009. The female gaze is front and center in Bette Gordon’s Variety (1983), a crafty, neon-bathed noir about a curious ticket-taker at a Times Square porno palace who takes a precarious liking to her new profession. Haven’t seen this masterpiece yet? Fix that immediately.
