Film Details

The Line Water Children
A film by Aliona van der Horst

A portrait of a Japanese pianist who is also an innovative visual artist. More than a film, it is a meditation on what it means to women to be (in)fertile. A courageous approach to a subject that remains a taboo and deepens our understanding of the relationship between body and mind. www.waterchildren.nl/en

No Job for a WomanNo Job For a Woman: The Women Who Fought to Report WWII
A film by Michèle Midori Fillion

Tells a story through the lives and work of wire service reporter Ruth Cowan, magazine reporter Martha Gellhorn, and war photographer Dickey Chapelle, three pioneers who turned their second-class assignments into a new kind of war story: one that was more intimate yet more revealing. www.nojobforawoman.com
