FREI_RAUM | Germany | 2019 | 03’
Director: Charlot van Heeswijk
Cast: Patrizia Bieri, Francesco Rondina, Jannis Tiedemann, Nataša Pivec
Synopsis: FREI_RAUM is an observation on everyday acts of male dominance, more so than about public transport etiquette. Because the phenomenon of “Manspreading” is a symptom of a much larger problem and not just a minuscule thing – it is an act of dominance that is the result of deep-rooted societal privilege borne of our patriarchal society. For all my sisters out there. “You deserve to take up space.” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
