Agnès VARDA and Barbara HAMMER, the two pioneers in the feminist films are not with us anymore. They have expressed their experiences into films in their own ways and carried out the feminist filmmaking throughout their lives. SIWFF presents a special lecture on the two great filmmakers with Sarah KELLER, an American film scholar. The lecture will highlight their pioneering paths as female film producers in the male-oriented film production system and their remarkable vestiges in the world’s film history.

As a cinematic protest against Nazism, her feature-length film The Last Stage (1948) depicted the true picture of the Auschwitz concentration camp to the global audience. In the lecture, Monika TALARCZYK, Polish film scholar will shed light on the film in terms of the studies of women's films on holocaust.
