Sisters (Feminist Cinema Event) Synopsis
Celebrating 40 years of service, the Southall Black Sisters were founded in 1979 in order to support Black (Asian and African-Caribbean) women threatened by gender based violence.
They have tirelessly campaigned for the provision of proper and accountable support services to enable women and their children to escape violent relationships and they themselves have provided refuge, advice, casework and counselling to hundreds of women throughout the years. Made in 2011, this film by Swedish artist Petra Bauer documents the life of the organisation over one week and collaboratively poses questions about feminism and the political landscape in contemporary society.
DISPATCH FMI is an intersectional feminist moving image curatorial practice and online platform with a focus on works created by women. Our aim is to bring feminist cinema and theory to all by making our screenings accessible, affordable, and educational.
Programme supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery.
