Event Description

What mechanisms are set in motion when women exert real power, power to change lives and countries? In recent years cases like Dilma Roussef, Julia Gillard or Hillary Clinton prove a pattern of patriarchal backlash against the very idea of a woman being in charge. In this session we explore this through the case of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, in Pascale Lamche's documentary: Winnie.

Pascale Lamche, 2017, France/ South Africa /Netherlands /Finland

Winnie Madikizela Mandela is one of the most misunderstood and intriguingly powerful contemporary female political figures.
Her rise and seeming fall from grace bear the hallmarks of epic tragedy.
For the first time, this film pieces together and properly considers her life and contribution to the struggle to bring down Apartheid from the inside, with intimate insight from those who were closest to her and with testimony from the enemies who sought to extinguish her radical capacity to shake up the order of things.

The short film "Women & Power" (2018), directed by Meg Earles, will open the screening.
