Mediterranean women on all shades
Since their creation, the Mediterranean women fimls meetings have been honoring women directors from both shores of the Mediterranean and allowing as many people as possible to discover their works. This rendezvous is absolutely unique in Europe because of its two facets: South cinema and women’s cinema. A cinema that wants to be demanding and often disturbing, brilliantly mixing comedy, drama and intimacy.
