DocuDonna is an international film festival dedicated to documentaries directed by women, a new appointment in the programme of Italian and international festivals. A heritage of images, sensibilities and points of view, scattered in a male-dominated cultural industry, compacted in an event, which releases an avant-garde film production, promotes and enhances it. An international film festival that allows many film, art and culture enthusiasts to discover the unpredictable styles of the new “Reality Cinema”.
The third afternoon of the festival will be entirely dedicated to Iran seen from the female point of view: three films that reflect on the Iranian issue, both artistic and gender-based. Preceding the screenings, a small focus dedicated to Iranian directors and current events, to reflect together on one of the most problematic moments for women in this country and for their emancipation.
The event will be presented by Sandra Innamorato and Nadia Pizzuti.
As a sign of solidarity with women and men in Iran, the Commission for Equal Opportunities of the Municipality of Massa Marittima will offer three speciall awards to the directors Francesca Borghetti and to the protagonist of her documentary Nasim Eshgi, and to the Iranians directors Ferouzeh Khosrovani and Faydim Ramsher.
