Runtime: 3×22’= 66′

The films (each 22 minutes long) feature issues of violence against women in different countries. There are seven in the series, and we selected “Find a Word For It” by Kristen Sellefyan, about the Democratic Republic of the Congo, “Showing the Red Card” by Patrick Bürge, about Austria, and “A Question of Rape” by Kim Hopkins, about Mauritania.

The films were followed by a discussion with Ms. Miriam Schär (Advisor at the Domestic Abuse Intervention Centre in Vienna), Dr. Margaret Agama (UNFPA Representative in DRC) and Ms. Sietske Steneker (Head of UNFPA Brussels).
