FEMINISTA, by Myriam Fougère, documentary, 60 min, Canada, 2017.
Feminista is a feminist road movie, a journey to the heart of global feminism. In 2015, Myriam Fougere joined a group of young activists who had formed a caravan to travel across twenty European countries – from Turkey to Portugal, by the way of the Balkans, to Italy, Spain and Portugal. Revealing how this new breed of politicized women inhabit their personal lives, Feminista documents how a dedicated international group of caravan dwelling young feminists traveled across a myriad of miles and territories to unite forces with other women. Fighting oppression, participating in local political gatherings, supporting homegrown local feminist activists, we watch face-to-face encounters and experience how understandings of local struggles build alliances of support. As a breath of solidarity, Feminista provides a rare glimpse into a widespread feminist groundswell movement, possibly one of the largest least understood and unrecognized mass political movement that is very much alive throughout the world today.
