Delband – Beloved
The strong-willed 82-year-old shepherdess Firouzeh enjoys her absolute independence with her cows in the crystal-clear, breathtaking landscape of Northern Iran. She loves doing the hard work all alone, including chopping wood and climbing trees. Widow of a forced marriage and having raised 11 kids, this is the least she deserves. Now she refuses to move to the comforts of village life in the valley…
Carmen and her friends, ordinary women of rural Brazil, are fed up with the brutality of their men and pursue the extraordinary: to build a community free of violence. Driven by female solidarity, empathy and intuition, gender roles are turned upside down and abusive men now respect if not fear the fierce women, their whistles, not to mention their impending sex strike!

of prostitution, but also want to contribute to a change in society‘s
awareness. Justyna Koeke comes from #ichbinkeinfreier (#I’m

of emancipated masculinity, as well as examining and questioning
the relationship between prostitution and gender relations in general.
