FRIDAY 10/22, 8:40 PM (SESSION 3)

Directors: Gustav Hofer, Luca Ragazzi
Producer: Marco Visalberghi

Description:

To have a penis is to be chained to a madman, wrote Sophocles, more than 2500 years ago. He was right then and he is still right today. Donald Trump won the White House despite his openly misogynist and chauvinistic stands. The sexual abuses against women of Harvey Weinstein showed that also Hollywood has a huge sexism problem and the scandal created a worldwide outcry on social media where women under the #MeToo started to describe their daily experiences with sexism. Intellectuals, feminists, activists, Democrats and even some Republicans are asking themselves: how can this be possible? There is a place in the world that could have the answers to that question. It’s Italy! The filmmakers use their homeland Italy as a case-study and look into five pillars that might hold the answers to their quest: the political system, education, media, the church and family.
