BFFW 2018: Unvictiming: Women filmmakers reframe sexual violence

At BABYLON, Berlin, Germany
On 12th March 2018 8 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.

Description

▽Unvictiming: Women filmmakers reframe sexual violence▽

Screening & panel discussion in cooperation with Another Gaze: A Feminist Film Journal.

‘In the past year, our culture has become suffused with stories of sexual violence: women's stories that span decades. Finally, we are listening and believing.

Yet, largely careless and titillating depictions of rape and sexual violence continue to dominate — ELLE, Nocturnal Animals, Gone Girl...

'Unvictiming' brings together largely overlooked women-directed short films on the subject, spanning five decades and including documentary, experimental and narrative modes. From Ana Mendieta to Jane Campion, 'Unvictiming' interrogates how we should (re)present sexual violence. It will be contextualised and framed by a post-screening discussion with filmmakers, activists and moderated by Another Gaze co-founder and editor Daniella Shreir.
