"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.
