TS 06 Girls* Riot! 16+

No taboos here! Besides experimental confrontations with menstrual pain, we see absurd arranged marriages and bizarre therapy sessions. We develop deep empathy and are struck by an all-consuming pressure to succeed. Sometimes loud, sometimes calm, dynamic and endlessly creative, the films deal with topics that the 15-19 year old curators of the Girls* Riot workshop care about.

The program premiere will be presented by the young curators on 17 November 2022 at 6pm at Pfefferberg Haus 13. This event will include interviews with filmmakers and an audience discussion.

Themes: Menstrual pain, self-expression, father-daughter relations, identity, sexism, migration, period poverty, gender equity, performance pressure, self-care, arranged marriage, child bride, societal pressure, (recounting) sexual violence

TW: blood, pain, self-harm, anxiety disorder, the slaughter of an animal, recounting of sexual abuse.
