Who is Bárbara Virgínia? by Luísa Sequeira at Frames – Portuguese Film Festival
The theme for 2018 is Frames On Women.
An edition that brings women to the foreground.
The 5th edition of Frames – Portuguese Film Festival casts the light on women.
Frames On Women is firstly about the complex problem of the representation of women in film and, secondly, about giving fair visibility to women through Portuguese cinema. Considering the vast majority of contemporary cinematic depictions is still linked to the male gaze, it is imperative to counteract it. This edition features therefore a selection of films from women and/or about women, placing the female gender on the foreground.
