Synopsis

The "Rote Zora" was a feminist militant women's lesbian group in the FRG in the 1970s and 1980s, which emerged from the context of the Revolutionary Cells. Central to the group was the self-empowerment of the women-lesbians and the break with the ascribed peacefulness. Their activities were directed, among other things, against everyday violence against women, against genetic and reproductive technologies, population policy and international conditions of exploitation as an expression of patriarchal domination. Narratives by various contemporary witnesses, interviews with a historian and former Zoras bring the history of the "Red Zora" and the women's movement of the time back to life. The film shows that many topics are still highly topical and offers discussion material for dealing with this history today.

Program Note

How should a feminist movement take place? If the way to fight also needs to be feminist, what does it look like? Rote Zora displayed the female voice in an extreme and radical way, telling women to “organise the gang”. While trailing the film with excitement, going through the footprints of Rote Zora’ in 70s and 80s, one is abruptly brought to one's senses. Agendas such as fighting against sexism, stopping the violence against women, decriminalizing abortion, and supporting women’s right to work, are still persisting issues in 2021. Has our society given an adequate response to the women who raised their voice in Gangnam, Jong-ro, and Hyehwa? How can the feminist movement speed up the changes?
