“Mulheres do meu país”

A film by Raquel Freire

Event Slider

Film screening and talk with the director Raquel Freire and the film's editor Rita M. Pestana

Let’s celebrate the multiple portraits of women who move this country forward every day. Through the voice of each of these women we will learn about the richness of their lived experiences, which together give us a legacy of trust, justice, perseverance, respect, and freedom.

There are 14 stories crossed, overlapped, contrasted, and put into dialogue, 14 testimonies of life of resistance, of dignity, which move us, question us, which sometimes make us laugh and sometimes make us swallow.

In each woman, a story where multiple oppressions intersect, in each subject a singularity that is also the synthesis of multiple social determinations. A portrait of the country, its structures and inequalities, but also of intelligence, courage, emancipation and the fight for happiness.
