Feminist Film Week presents – Girls <3 Girls

SCREENING:
FRIDAY, 12.05.17, 16:00

Despite queer women* gaining more and more screen time on TV and in cinemas, the representation of queer women* and lesbians in films is often lacking or one- sided. But the real life experiences are nothing but one-sided. This selection of short films curated by the Berlin Feminist Film Week is a celebration of girls* who love girls*, and explores the plethora of elements of loving other women: the coming out, the search for identity, the rst kiss, the romance, the hardship, the stigma and the sex.
