Special Screenings | Ukrainian Retrospective: Female Rebel
Zhovten. Anshlag

September 6 | 19:00

Was there feminism in the classic Ukrainian animation? We had that question in mind while making this retrospective. Not all of the films' heroines go for the protest but certainly all women characters in this programme have sufficient grounds for indignation. Unpaid reproductive labour, domestic violence, gender stereotypes pressure  all this can be seen in the frames of Ukrainian animations. Mostly presented with humour and through the family roles division stories, these topics get a new viewpoint from the modern audience. We offer you to take a fresh look at the gender conflicts in the Ukrainian village and city, and at the same time to re-evaluate and discuss the history of Ukrainian animation.

Running Time 60 min.
