An unassuming housewife fights for the right of women in her homeland to vote in this rousing crowd pleaser from writer/director Petra Biondina Volpe. It centres on Nora, a young housewife who lives in a quiet Swiss village that has seen little of the social upheaval of the 1968 movement. But when Nora begins to campaign for the right of women to vote, she begins to experience some resistance of her own. The film’s timely, character-driven story shows how the political is always the personal.

This screening will be preceded by short film Newport Gun Girls.
