2000 women in 50 different countries are represented in the massive project that is the documentary Woman. The filmmakers have travelled around the world to collect interviews of women from every socioeconomic class, country, age, faith and life experience. In spite of the grand scale of the project, the film manages to give an intimate portrait of the stories of individuals. Not least because every person interviewed seem to look you right in the eyes as they tell their stories. We hear about the most impactful experiences of their lives, like relationships, war, childbirth, joy, menstruation, and sexuality. Even though every person interviewed have vastly different backgrounds, we can through the film begin to see the similarities that unite us all.
Woman won the audience award at Bergen International Film Festival.
