Two, yet one.

Like a big lunch, the 6th Auroville Film Festival ended leaving us all full, tired and with big smiles on our faces. But still, I’m not quite able to define it. Had I assisted a community festival or a film festival? Every person with whom I spoke gave me a totally different answer. They ranged...

Una serata dedicata al tema femminile. #FEMALE Pleasure di Barbara Miller è un altro documentario da inserire nella vostra lista di film da non perdere, per comprendere quanta oppressione, ignoranza e stupidità siano ancora radicate e perpetrate a livello globale contro le donne.
