Austria, Germany 2022 – Director: Sabine Derflinger – Original language: German – Subtitles: None

Alice Schwarzer has shaped feminist discourse in Europe since the 1970s like no other woman. She has initiated countless campaigns, never shies away from conflict and is regularly at the centre of controversial debates. Who is this woman and what drives her? A radically subjective portrait of a charismatically fearless woman among those who fight alongside her. Ina Borrmann and Ysabel Fantou
