On the 27th January 2020, Nelly Ben Hayoun Studios will be speaking in the Focus:Feminism seminar at Göteberg Film Festival!
Falling under the festival’s feminist film focus, 20 films will be shown from nearly just as many countries. The directors Jenna Bass, Lendita Seqiraj, Billie Piper, Tamara Dawit and Nelly Ben Hayoun will discuss film and feminism departing from a South-African road trip Western, a house in Kosovo inhabited by women who have survived sexual violence, an odd British kitchen sink realistic romcom, a documentary about an Ethiopian communist rebel, and an unconventional hunt for the origin of knowledge.
Moderator:Dina Afkhampour, Festival Director, Cinemafrica.
The conversation will be held in English.
Focus: Feminism & Brazil
We expand on this year’s two focus themes and dedicate each of them with a day of dialogs and exciting meetings. Under the headlines Directors talk and Work in progress you will find additional items included in the focus themes.
