*Cinenova and Bildwechsel Screening in Berlin, Globale Film Festival*
5 and 6 November, Cinema Moviemento
To develop a non-patriarchal perspective was a priority topic of feminist film after 1968. Media archives like bildwechsel (Hamburg) and film distributors like Cinenova (London) turned feminist theory into an image practice. Focussing on the image politics of labour and the body we want to discuss with activists from both institutions about the relationship between feminist movement, film and art.
