Films in Times of War
April – September 2023

On Solidarity is a curated film programme that explores films by Ukrainian artists in times of war and violence.

20 May -10 June 2023
Anna Scherbyna / Valentina Petrova, Sisters (2019), 12 Min.
The film Sisters is dedicated to the anti-feminist conservative women's movement Sisterhood of St. Olha, which rejects an open definition of gender and postulates a patriarchal society where women do not have the right to vote. The ambivalence of the movement's leader is unmistakable in her quest for reverse emancipation and power. It attempts to analyse and ironically reflect the image of the anti-feminist activists: Members of the fictional Sisterhood of Saint Mary of Egypt fight for unequal rights and paint their nails. In a world full of temptations and perversions, they must resist. Can these beautiful and brave women, who don't wear trousers, save the traditional family values of patriarchy?
