Building on the collective potential of collaboration among members located in different regions of the world, this project presents the diverse approaches of the artists to gender issues and feminism based on their respective viewpoints. By screening films about and exchanging opinions on the feminist movement in Japan, gender and migrants, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, the collective explores means of expressing the complexity and diversity of individuals and societies and considers the possibilities of various forms of solidarity through collective filmmaking.
