A collaboration between Berlin Feminist Film Week and Kinoclan, ensemble promoting films about the feminine experience as seen through women’s eyes, has produced an evening of simultaneous screening, in both Berlin and Tel Aviv. 5 short films of 5 female directors, all involving questions of gender and language. In each of the films, the main character encounters a situation which forces her to discover surviving ingenuity – to adapt, to rebel, and even a invent a new language.
Following the screening, a live Skype talk will be held with the participation of the directors and the audience.
