This Thursday 23th of June at 20.00 ΕΕΤ cinematopedia project is organizing an online event to talk about how cinema is approaching the subject of gender inequality and gender-based violence.
Cinematopedia is a Creative Europe MEDIA project which aims to use cinemas as innovation hubs for local communities.
In this European event there is participation from four different countries: Italy, France, Lithuania and Greece. The Cinematopedia partners from these countries will present case studies, films that addressed the subject of gender, and will then discuss them with the people attending the event.
The list of films that we are going to talk about and the partners presenting are the following:
- Rencontres Audiovisuelles (Lille, France) – Où vont les sons (2020) Five friends meet on Skype and a sixth one hasn’t appeared yet. Little by little, we discover what binds them: the memory of the “Talk to me about love”, an evening organized by a certain Clémence. The story alternates between the Skype discussion and the memory of that evening. Director: Florent Gouëlou
- Politistikos Syllogos Fortetsas (Crete, Greece) – Little England (2013) An epic tale of lost love and a beautiful story of the love between sisters, set in the Greek island of Andros at the beginning of the 20th century. Director: Pantelis Voulgaris
- Kino Pasaka (Vilnius, Lithuania) – And then we danced (2019) A passionate coming-of-age tale set amidst the conservative confines of modern Tbilisi, the film follows Merab, a competitive dancer who is thrown off balance by the arrival of Irakli, a fellow male dancer with a rebellious streak. Director: Levan Akin
- Callysto APS (Napoli, Italy) – Women of the Land (2021) WOMEN OF the LAND is a documentary that tells the stories of a group of Italian women who moved from the city to the countryside to make their dream come true: live in harmony with nature through the self-production of organic food, learn the arts of cultivation, transformation, preservation, restore local communities and promote an alternative lifestyle against over-consumption. Director: Elisa Flaminia Inno
- ELORIS (Mytilene, Greece) – Petite Fille (2020) The touching portrait of eight-year-old Sasha, who questions her gender and in doing so, evokes the sometimes disturbing reactions of a society that is still invested in a biological boy-girl way of thinking. Director: Sébastien Lifshitz
