Mysterious Woman

"This film shows us women as soldiers, partisans, watchmen, criminals as well as child-bearing, drunk, masturbating, strong females but also as circumcised, dismembered victims, who thus must pay for the fear that women cause within men. Scenes from old and recent documentaries, from trivial films and my own staged sequences are mounted to a collage of images. These are supplemented by a collage of sounds and montage out of quotes and my own texts. It's also about me; about my fears and fighting myself to be able to live my own strengths." -- B.H.
