The programme is as follows:
Florence Has Left The Building
Directed by Mirrah Foulkes
Florence (Jacki Weaver) is a foul-mouthed resident of a nursing home trying to escape. She gets her chance with the help of a washed-up Elvis impersonator.
98 Years & Counting
Directed by Kirthi Nath and Zel Anders
As we enter a new wave of the women’s movement, we have the opportunity to transform and heal our racist and sexist roots and look deeper than simply replacing some men leaders with women. These filmmakers went into the field and asked women at the Oakland Women’s march – what kind of women do you want to see in leadership? What are the values you want to see reflected? How can we be the ones we have been waiting for?
Directed by Joosje Duk
In NIGHT, a small but arguably racist and inconsiderate gesture changes the relationship between women from different backgrounds. The film shows that micro-aggressions which people might not think of as racist can still hurt others, making people think twice about their seemingly harmless actions.
To What End
Directed by Vaishnavi Sundar
Despite the never-ending atrocities against women in India, it wasn’t until 1997 that the Supreme Court of India thought it may be a good idea to set up a formal forum for redressal. The 2013 Act which superseded the earlier Vishaka Commission was set up. But is setting committees alone solving problems?
Directed by Victoria Mapplebeck
