This is a woman’s world

The follow-up to Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s audience favourite HUMAN, WOMAN asks a simple yet impossibly difficult question – namely: what does it mean to be a woman? In order to answer this query directors Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Anastasia Mikova travelled the world and interviewed two thousand women from fifty different countries. The resulting film is a rich tapestry of viewpoints, life experiences and schools of thought, which will no doubt give audiences much to reflect on, disagree with and discuss.

NB! BABY CINEMA: The screening on Wednesday 02 October at 11:15 is tailored for families with babies.


Festival guest: director Anastasia Mikova guests the festival for the screening on Sunday 29 September
