Every Woman
Short Film | Duration: 00:08:00 |
Dir. Cristina Elias, Brazil
Nominated for Best Experimental Film, Best Activism Film, Best Body Positive Film

Synopsis Discussing themes such as gender, identity and society, this video-performance places the woman’s body in a place where opposites try to live together: an individual body and a political/collective body; the right to visibility of the nude body and the danger of exploiting that same nudity; a body that is inserted in a reality already written by social, cultural, family traditions … and a body that seeks, in between and upon these same words, to weave its own text. A body that covers and discovers itself, creating, in a dance between commandments and freedoms, obligations and rights, its own way of operating in society.
