In recent years, communities across the world have responded to enduring social, gender, racial and economic inequality through collective actions such as #Metoo, the Occupy movement and Black Lives Matter. At the heart of it, such movements are often fueled by anger and frustration at an ostensible lack of political will or means to effect systemic change.
Our fifth edition of Women in Film and Photography seeks to explore how rage against discrimination, repression and injustice can be channeled into a force for awareness, action and change through art.
The women image-makers featured in this programme have created works that speak to local and international concerns, disrupting hegemonic narratives by surfacing stories of marginalised communities and invisible figures of history. Through these works, the programme aims to celebrate, enrich and underline the necessity of diverse voices and representation.
