The film industry is a male dominated industry worldwide. The selection of films in ADIFF Women’s History Month Film Series is a modest celebration of the work of international women filmmakers of color who, against all odds, have broken the Glass Ceiling and managed to create meaningful pieces of cinematic art.
France, Tunisia, the USA, Bangladesh, Senegal and more are part of the program. Some of the films focus on women stories while others highlight men stories with a firm hand. They talk on issues of incredible relevance today such as racism in France, Islam and women, Black women in the military, racial identity, union building struggles, colonialism, race in Latin-America and more. These are revolutionary women whose works deserve an appreciation and understanding that some of them have never had due to the fact they are women speaking with their voice in a male dominated field.
