Winter 2013: 5 sessions
Our films will always be presented in "themes" of 5 films each. This first theme covers films whose subject is WOMAN. There will be no analysis and presentation, just the films themselves. A presenter from CAMA will distribute a write up about each film (which can be downloaded) and its director. At the end, a discussion will take place for those who wish. The films are unusual in two senses: 1) They are not commonly viewed in cinema halls and 2) they deal with other subjects than standard gender defence and equality of women with men.
The 5 films have one element in common: the key role in each is a Woman (sometimes several). The films are selected away from the usual social/psychological films. They all have an unusual approach. When the film is not long, we will also show a 10 minute short film before it.
