Elaine May (Mickey & Nicky)

Sandrine Bonnaire (Sabine) , I haven't seen the film though, although the reviews
are good

from the Berliner Schule

Angela Schanelec (Passing Summer, Marseille)
Valeska Grisebach (Longing)

On a note: I just realized that some directors with female-sounding
names aren't female at all. Examples: Idrissa Ouedraogo, Flora Gomes,
Karen Shakhnazarov :lol:
