In focus

NGO Women's Rights Center and Underhill have made a selection of films dealing with issues of feminism, human rights and women's creativity.

Three films have been included in the selection: Bojina Panayotova's "I See Red People" that reflects the situation in Bulgaria during the communist era through the research of family history, insisting on the importance of re-examining the past for gaining a better understanding of the present; Kevin MacDonald's "Whitney:Can I Be Me" - life story of a famous pop singer Whitney Houston who reveals the horrific dynamics of sexual and physical abuse and Iva Parađanin's "The Unwanted Daughters of Montenegro", which discusses the problem of selective abortions in Montenegro, which gained public attention for the first time after the campaign "Unwanted", whose aim is to point to the scale and consequences of this problem in our country.

Each screening will be followed by a discussion about films and the way in which covered issues are manifested in our society.
