Der Traum der Revolution

squeezed up

October 24, 2017 marked 100 years of the October Revolution. To mark the occasion, the film "Comrade, Where Are You Today? - The Dream of Revolution" by Finnish director Kirsi Marie Liimatainen was shown at Moviemento Linz. We spoke to her in an interview about the content of the aforementioned film, how relevant the ideas of Marxism and socialism are today and the role of feminism and equal rights


At the end of October, we visited the queer-feminist festival Vox Feminae in Zagreb, Croatia. Its focus is on the promotion of national and transnational queer-feminist artists and deals with questions about art, urban and alternative culture as well as gender issues and gender-sensitive social engagement. We spoke to Marino Čajdo, head of the Vox Feminae Platform, about the festival, its content and the importance of self-sufficiency.
This interview can be heard in English.
