OLGA & OLGA, 2017

Jean Renoir once said that "the art of cinema is to approach the truth of the people." In my film, OLGA & OLGA (2017) I wanted to know what feminism, love and freedom meant for two friends in the Soviet Union. In Márta Mészáros' feature film ÖRÖKBEFOGADÁS (Adoption,1974), women assert themselves against their parents, teachers and lovers. The short film HISTOIRE D’UNE FEMME (2005) by Karim Souaki documents the life of an elderly woman in Tunis on the margins of society. All three films try to approach the living conditions of women in their social environment from different cultural perspectives. (em) (28.2., presented by Eleonore de Montesquiou)
