Feminism WTF

(Austria, 2023)

Directed by: Katharina Mückstein
PHOTOGRAPHY: Michael Schindegger

Even though feminism is considered the most successful social movement of the 20th century, to date there have been no documentaries that deal with its status quo. So here it comes: Feminism WTF! The achievements of the women’s* movement influence our lives every day. But still, when I say “feminism,” we might not mean the same thing. This film reflects on current debates and analyzes the potential of intersectional feminism to profoundly change our future societies.

Ruthless Times: Songs of Care

(Armotonta menoa - hoivatyön lauluja, Finland, 2022)

Directed by: Susanna Helke
PHOTOGRAPHY: Sari Aaltonen

Documentary segments are combined with choral tableau vivant scenes, capturing the current crisis in the Finnish elderly care sector. With its dark humor, and at times grim but poignant moments, the film portrays the unravelling of the ethos behind caring for the elderly citizens of a Nordic welfare society, illuminating the mismatch between the ethical and economical foundations of care work. The care-workers’ anonymous testimonies are composed into choral songs, depicting everyday exper...

Ultraviolette and the Blood-Spitters Gang

After the death of his grandmother Emma, Robin Hunzinger and his mother Claudie found a carefully preserved collection of letters which Emma received from a girl called Marcelle.

No Ordinary Life

(USA, 2021)

Directed by: Heather O’Neill

 In a field dominated by men, five pioneering camerawomen – Mary Rogers, Cynde Strand, Jane Evans, Maria Fleet and Margaret Moth – went to the frontlines of wars, revolutions and disasters to bring us the truth.

Orlando, My Political Biography

(Orlando, ma biographie politique, France, 2023)

Directed by: Paul B. Preciado

Gotovo stoljeće nakon što je Virginia Woolf objavila svoj roman Orlando: životopis, filozof i trans aktivist Paul B. Preciado piše joj pismo u kojem joj poručuje da je njezin lik postao stvaran. Preciado postavlja pitanje: “Tko su suvremeni Orlando?” 25 transrodnih i nebinarnih osoba različitih dobi utjelovljuje slavni Woolfin lik, istovremeno pričajući priče o vlastitim životima. Osobne priče su pak ispresjecane arhivskim materijalima koji prizivaju stvarne povijesne...
