PRODUCTION AAMOD – Archivio Audiovisivo del Movimento Operaio e Democratico

Intimate, other, virginal, objectified, ethereal, fragmented: the female body mirrors a battlefield for all women that, in the 1960’s and 1970’s, claimed its re-appropriation. Battlefield is a tribute to all second-wave feminist movements; through fragments of daily life and social battles, it reconstructs those key moments in our recent history. Sound and images give voice to the archives of Archivio Audiovisivo del Movimento Operaio e Democratico, in an imaginary journey between different representations of femininity of that time.
