Lou Andreas-Solome, the Audacity to Be Free

Loading...
Lou Andreas-Salome, the woman who enraptured nineteenth century Europe's greatest minds, recounts her life to Ernst Pfeiffer in this German film directed by Cordula Kablitz-Post. A published novelist, poet and essayist, Salome's desire to live a life free from convention scandalized society but spurred genius and passion in others, including Friedrich Nietzsche, Paul Ree and her lover, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Working with Sigmund Freud, she became the first female psychoanalyst.

Privilege

Loading...
Middle-age documentary filmmaker Yvonne Washington is becoming a "woman of a certain age", so she invites long-time friend Jenny to assist in filming a candid and open dialogue on menopause. This becomes a commentary on the implicit interrelation between vanity and subjugation, as women already relegated to secondary status in society face further trivialization and exclusion, reduced to a caricatured, iconic pop culture image: the crone. The film is also a scathing exposition of ageism, sexism, economic elitism, and racism--the isms that artificially define and characterize empowerment in contemporary society--and the marginalization, disenfranchisement, and social segregation that pervade everyday existence, informing the myth of privilege.

Certain Women

A stirring look at three women striving to forge their own paths amidst the wide-open plains of the American Northwest: a lawyer who finds herself contending with both office sexism and a hostage situation; a wife and mother whose determination to build her dream home puts her at odds with the men in her life; and a young law student who forms an ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand. A portrait emerges of flawed but strong-willed individuals in the process of defining themselves.

80 Egunean

"Axun and Maite met at secondary school during a repressive era that never allowed their relationship to go beyond friendship. Later on, their paths led them apart: Axun got married and moved out to the country to live on a farm, while Maite traveled the world, clarified her sexual orientation in her own mind, and now, having had a successful career as a piano teacher, she has returned to San Sebastian to take up her retirement. Fifty years on, Axun and Maite, now both seventy, meet up by chance while visiting patients in hospital. At first, they don't recognize one another, but soon long- suppressed feelings begin to emerge once more with the same intensity, and Axun is aware for the first time of her chance to start something entirely new.

We Are the Night

A Little for My Heart and a Little for My God

Loading...
Since in Algeria most women traditionally are not allowed to mix with men, female orchestras customarily entertain gatherings of women. When they play, women remove their veils and dance, away from the view of men. All summer long one can hear music from roof terraces and walled gardens as women celebrate engagements, weddings and the circumcision of their sons. The meddahatts are women musicians who perform for other women. Though they are much in demand, they are held in low esteem. Many are widowed or divorced and have fallen on hard times. But their earthy humor and erotic showmanship delights their normally constrained sisters. This film is a portrait of one such orchestra. Only a woman filmmaker could have penetrated this closed environment and captured on film sucha spontaneou [...]
