The cycle is part of the 25th Barcelona Women’s Film Show.
"A cycle that showcases a series of film materials that confront the imperative imposed by film ellipsis on women". That’s how the the organizers define Manifestos Fílmics Feministes, an event that is part of the programming of the 25th Barcelona Women’s Film Festival, which will take place in the auditorium of the Center for Contemporary Culture (CCCB) on 10 and 12 November .
Activities will begin at 6pm on the two days of the event and admission is free. Friday 10 will see the premiere of the short film F (r) icciones entre el trabajo y la vida by Raquel Marques, María Zafra, María Romero García and Zoraida Roselló. The same directors will present the film, which reflects on women in their work spaces and the boundaries between work and life. This will be followed by the screening of Through the Glass Ceiling, a British animated short film from 1994 that focuses on working class women. The last film of the day is Performing the Border, a film essay by Ursula Biemann shot in Ciudad Juárez, on the Mexican border with the United States, which explores the effects that the border has on the territory and the people who live there. At 8pm, the film The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter, which was directed by Connie Field in 1980, deals with the opportunism with which the US government built the propaganda operation around the iconic figure of Rosie the Riveter.
On Sunday 12 there will be only one screening, Sois belle et tais-toi!, in which the actress, director and militant feminist Delphine Seyrig interviews French and American actresses about women in the audiovisual world.
