Women to the Front - Thursday 30th November

The film is the brave testimony of seven Colombian women fed up with a society that kills them. The protagonists, through their lives, construct another reality from scratch, from the foundations, from an optic where violence is not the rule that dictates their lives. There are seven independent stories that speak of dialogue and consensus. They repeat that patriarchy silences and annihilates them.
