luna.doc# 5 - start!
The fifth edition of luna.doc, a One World Romania at School project, has just begun - in an edition that aims to open up discussions about women's rights, both in Romania and at an international level.
In November and December, we are going to travel all across Romania, to dozens of high schools, to screen our selection of 4 feature-length documentaries and a collection of shorts, designed to educate students about women's rights and to encourage them to think about this issue.
The fifth edition began on Monday, November 12, with a projection of the documentary film The Children of the Decree (dir. Florin Iepan, Răzvan Georgescu), hosted by the Unirea National College from Turnu Magurele. High schools from cities such as Bucharest, Iasi, Constanta, Ploiesti, Calarasi, Pitesti, Câmpulung, Targu Jiu, Resita, Drobeta Turnu Severin, along with many more will host screenings in the context of luna.doc. A special screening took place on Thursday, November 15, at Aurel Vlaicu National College in Bucharest, with the national premiere of Menstrual Man (dir. Amit Virmani). Both of the screenings were accompanied by discussions in which the One World Romania at School team and teachers had discussions with the students about the main themes and subject matter of the documentaries - an opportunity where the films served as a starting point for debating topics related to women's rights and of their history.
The documentaries included in the project are examples of people and communities that have changed perceptions about women's rights and freedoms over time. By viewing and discussing these films, we approach the status of women not as a given, but as a process that is continually constructed. Conceived as a month of documentary films that take place in high schools across the country, luna.doc is, therefore, an opportunity to talk about victories gained in the field of women's rights in recent decades, but also to ask ourselves what we want to happen in the future.
