WOMANIFESTO

WOMANIFESTO project is a mosaic film-manifesto to unite the voices of women artists from across cultures, generations and creative disciplines in a collective roar - a powerful demand for change.
The project involves 15 Greece-based women artists whose manifestos were filmed inside the greenhouse of the Agricultural University of Athens - the biodiverse setting mirroring the diversity of artistic voices now.

Director Statement

Artistic manifestos have always been born in difficult times, major crises (political, social, economic). It was and still is a form of expression that proclaims something, it is a constitutional document that contains resistance but also a vision for something new, innovative.
WOMANIFESTO is undoubtedly born in dark times, in a boiling pot. WOMANIFESTO aims not to erase this fire but to use it to articulate a different discourse - a fresh, subversive, different discourse on the things that are happening around us, from the female artistic voice.
The loss of biodiversity of ideas is a crisis that is unfolding before our eyes and it is the responsibility of all of us - let alone artists - to act on it now. It is no coincidence that the maiden film is shot in a greenhouse - at the Agricultural University of Athens. The greenhouse has the care and the right conditions for new ideas to sprout.

My vision is to create a large mosaic of ideas from different voices of women artists from all over the world, starting from Athens. Voices that can coexist, blossom and most importantly inspire and powerfully transform each of us even in the most difficult circumstances.
