The Birds Eye View festival celebrates the work of women in film and this month they're turning the spotlight onto documentary. Diversity is the key to their programme's success, with films focussing on subjects as diverse as Hebron, The Vagina Monologues and Taxidermy. The films will be screened at the Institue for Contemporary Arts in London from September 15-17.
