Saturation, Contrast, Sharpness: New Women’s Cinema

Film screening and discussion
16:00 – 17:30 (Großer Hörsaal)

Nadia Parfan of Women’s Sotnia & Rhythms of Resistance

I want to show a selection of recent short films by female directors from Eastern Europe (and a few other Western, yet relative countries). These films provide a range of modern feminist perspectives in film through topic, character choice, camera work etc. In doing so they make women’s voices heard and women’s conditions more visible.

Initially this selection was curated by myself and Women’s Sotnia for 8th of March in Kyiv, and later shown in Odessa and Ivano-Frankivsk under the title “Bechdel-test: New women’s cinema”. For Vienna, I was going to change it an add a few new films, including my own – a short story about an LGBTQ-priest from Russian Orthodox Church.
