What If Women Ruled The World? (Italy) by Giulia Magno
Judy Chicago (b. 1939) is one of the most influential artists of our time. Her work has been essential in creating a space for feminism within a male-dominated art world, and continues to empower women of all walks of life. Punk musician Nadya Tolokonnikova (b. 1989) founded Russian dissident feminist group Pussy Riot. She served two years in prison over an anti-Putin performance in 2012. Judy and Nadya decided to join forces to inspire people to imagine a different, more humane world. “What If Women Ruled The World?” chronicles their first historic collaboration.

Hurrah, we are still alive! (Poland) by Agnieszka Polska
An artistic commune is working on a film about Rosa Luxemburg, but the mysterious Director disappears as they set out to start filming. Although the crew are fascinated by the Director, they also loathe him. The question is - where has he gone and who really is the man, who has so strongly influenced the life of this community? The dynamics of relationships between people living in an artistic and emotional symbiosis turns out to be equally explosive and toxic. The film was inspired by an artistic group led by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Running Time: 01:25:06
