“Women Running with the River” – Epilogue
-A Flashback film for a new beginning-
Our villages women running to the nature to the river for leaving the barriers and stereotype to the river.
To be reborn there with a new beginning and solidarity can be alive.
This film is about:
Social barriers that women had to face. Their only and possible way to survive was represented as being married happily ever after- in the society.
But this social – religious norms – does not fit to the women of our village of Verscio, they run away, leave behind this archaic norm to be under commodity of a male authority.
Our village’s women run next to the river – where they find the reality- freedom and sharing – their wishes of love and even making new babies, where the creation can happen from the river.
They find their authenticity and sharing solidarity in a female society around the river. They find their wildness and beauty with the River.
