Though feminist in its implications, Yvonne Rainer's 1974 film _________ the filmmaker's active involvement in feminist politics.
Thanks for your attention!
Thank you. The right answer is E according to my book, but I don't understand how come there's a comflict between the two clauses.
If Yvonne went to the trouble of making a feminist movie in 1974, we would expect her to be actively involved in the feminist movement at that time. But the "though" indicates an apparent conflict in the facts given. The only word that provides an apparent conflict is "antedated."
"Apparent conflict" may be a poor way to describe the use of "though," but I can't think of a better way at the moment. I intend it to mean "there appears to be a conflict." Perhaps somebody in this thread will improve on it.
I hope this explanation doesn't further confuse you.

E - antedated because its a matter of sequence : first she made the film and only afterwards she was actively involved in the feminist movement.Good luck!
