“The fundamental role of women during the First World War (and more generally over the twentieth century wars), to date, has not yet been completely illuminated in its importance and tragedy: in fact, women have had to rebuild a world from the ashes and ruins of the conflict. A selection of female video-artists from the B#Side War International Festival testifies through powerful and symbolic images the perspective of today’s women on the conflict”.
In collaboration with Anne O’Callaghan, Toronto CineCycle and Art for The World
B#Side War app was realised with the contribution of Cariplo, Fitzcarraldo, FUnder35 and developed by Neos Logos s.r.l.
