SHOCKING PINK ENDORPHINES
Films about women in sport
Focus created and curated by Laura Aimone
An intriguing trip around the world through very diverse sports. Undisputed travel companions: women. From Pakistan to Mexico, from Israel to Mongolia, from Ethiopia to Iraq, crossing Palestine, Iran and Europe, the focus will present short and long features films chosen among the best films about sports that travelled the Festival world in the past years. The main genre is documentary, but there are also a series of fiction and animation films.
No matter what the latitude, sports offer women a way to escape from the ordinary life, be it a war situation or a boring existence without any purpose. But they can also be a way to question patriarchal societies, pushing both the personal limits and the boundaries of what is acceptable. Sports may be a passport to a better life or simply a thrill to add more adrenaline to one’s life. Even the most individualistic activity implies some sort of interaction with people around and achieving results always comes at a price. Sports can become a way of living or be turned into art.
A kaleidoscope of film genres and ways of living sports, as diverse as the shades of women.
