In this fourth edition of A Female Direction we will screen the highly acclaimed Ginger & Rosa (2012). Prior to the screening, our curator will give a talk about the powerful director Sally Potter.

Friends Ginger (Fanning) and Rosa (Englert) were born in 1945 in the same London nurse room. In the early sixties they experience everything more or less at the same time: the first cigarette, kiss, drunkenness, sex. Soon, however, the age of nuclear danger and free love casts a shadow over friendship. Beautifully intimate filmed coming of age drama with a fine jazz soundtrack gives a nice picture of time.

We are very glad to announce to you this edition’s compelling short film ‘Yulia & Juliet’ by director Zara Gina Dwinger.

This film is about two lost souls who find each other in an impossible place. A tragic love between two troubled teenage girls, loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but now overhauled: Yulia and Juliet. And it was selected for this years Berlinale - Berlin International Film Festival, Frameline – San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival and the Palm Springs International ShortFest, Official Selection.

Direction: Zara Dwinger / Screenplay: Jolein Laarman / Cinematography: Douwe Hennink / Cast: Sara Luna Zoric en Dylan Jongejans / Music: Ella Van der Woude
