A WOMAN IS A WOMAN: THE FEMALE POV - Subjective Histories
Coffee Colored Children
Dir. Ngozi, Onwurah, 1988, 15 min.
We Want Roses, Too
Alina Marazzi, 2008, 85 min.
A documentary that tells the history of feminism in Italy in the 60's and 70's through diaries, illustrated romance novels, pop songs, home movies and other found footage. The style is the content; the filmmaker's rejection of objectivity and insistence on shaping history through a private and emotional pointofview was in part what differentiated Italian feminism from the women's movement in Britain and America. For Italian feminists, communication had to take new feminine forms and the personal was highly political.
Following the screening: panel discussion on "Feminine Aesthetics and the Fourth Wave of Feminism"
