The femininity through the movie prism is the theme of the third movie night in the Artsvit Gallery.
Can we say anything new about it? How does the change of public opinion on gender reflect on the contemporary author's cinema? What is the view on and attitude towards female directors today? How do the authors feel femininity in their heroes and heroines and pass it on the screen? We offer to find answers during the night discussion.
Psychological Thriller 'Elle', directed by Paul Verhoeven
We analyze the smallest nuances of the main character's actions and motives. Is it easy to predict them in the context of a tense plot? Is the director's attitude to female characters different from his previous films, including the "Basic Instinct"?
‘The New Girlfriend’, directed by François Ozone
We are exploring a director’s special view and feeling of femininity. Is femininity something innate and can one make a conscious choice? What is the attitude toward it today in society and culture? Additionally, we appreciate the unique and recognizable directorial handwriting.
‘On My Way’, directed by Emmanuelle Bercot
The movie starring incredible Catherine Deneuve is interesting in the parallel study of two lines. We watch the plot line of the mature main character, who was the beauty contest winner in the youth, and compare with Deneuve’s own fate. We are looking for intersection points between the fictional and real personality. Does the perception and influence of the age change according to gender? How important is age by itself?
