Informations about the screenings.

One year after the national women’s strike, the issue of equality is far from settled. In the collective documentary LES NOUVELLES ÈVES, six filmmakers delve into the everyday lives of six women from different professions and explore what it means to be a woman in today’s Switzerland. Alternating glimpses into the lives of these “everyday heroines” show how the protagonists consciously resist role attributions and fight for their personal goals – even against social barriers. An exciting and illuminating look at a highly topical subject.
