THE FEMINISTER
(85 min) Sweden
[watch trailer]

Director/Producer: Viktor Nordenskiöld

Incredible coverage of four years in the office of the Swedish foreign minister, Margot Wallström, known for her fearless feminist agenda and sharp, empathic mind. We witness her arduous negotiations with Saudi Arabia, Israel and North Korea, as well as a highly competitive campaign for a seat in the UNSC, followed by a crash course in keeping it cool in the face of death threats and intimidation.
