Event Description

A screening of shorts docs on women mobilizing for change: reclaiming their rights, fighting stigma, opposing abuse. What does the fight for Human Rights look like accross the Globe? From Spain to Brazil, from El Salvador to Canada women from all ages and backgrounds unite to bring about social justice.

BODY MANIFESTO
Carol Araujo, Brazil, 2016
The documentary Body Manifesto presents a panorama of feminism in Brazil, its history and tradition, specifically focusing on women's fight for bodily autonomy.

BLOODY ACTIVIST
Rebecca Brand, UK, 2017
Whilst volunteering at the New London Synagogue Drop-In for refugees and asylum seekers, Gabby Edlin noticed there were no period products on the list of items the Centre collected. What started as a whip-round amongst family and friends on Facebook soon ballooned into a storage locker full of pads and a social media campaign for donations fuelled by Gabby’s sense of humour and determination.

Bloody Activist reveals what it takes to run a grassroots social activism campaign, and forces us to think about how something as seemingly small as a sanitary pad can make the world of difference to the women and girls who wouldn’t otherwise have access to them.

FAT HIKING CLUB
Layla Cameron, Canada, 2018
A woman seeks to make the outdoors more accesible for fat people – just as they are and without shame.

WE ARE NOT ALONE
María Aizpuru, El Salvador, 2016
Documentary denouncing the threats faced by Human Rights Defenders in Honduras and El Salvador.

ORGANIZING THE IMPOSSIBLE
Carme Gomila & Tonina Matamalas, Spain, 2017
«Las Kellys», the Spanish association of hotel Chambermaids organized outside majority unions, are struggling to improve the working conditions and empower women workers trapped in the precariousness of the feminized labour market.
Within the 15 minutes that they have to clean up a room, this short doc maps the different issues they face, such as employment precariousness, feminization of care and the invisible workload, health and medicalization, the politics of tourism, migration, community organizing and resistance.
