DISCUSSION: HOW TO LOOK AT WOMEN (2020)

How does film and documentary cinema look at women? What does it mean to women – as objects and subjects of the gaze, as viewers, as filmmakers? Could there be a different way to film women and to look at women? What would it mean for cinema?

DocPoint, in collaboration with Long Play, arranges a discussion on women as objects and subjects of the gaze on Saturday, 1 February at 3pm at the Bio Rex Lobby.

Participants: film researcher Anu Koivunen, director Inka Achté and Benedetta Barzini, an academic, renowned feminist and former top model and the protagonist of the film THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MY MOTHER (dir. Beniamino Barrese).

Saturday 1 February 3.00-4.00 pm at DocPoint Festival Centre, Bio Rex, 2nd floor (Mannerheimintie 22-24). Free entry!
