Shorts: Body capability

Screening

Event Information

We all have different bodies and thereby different bodily capabilities. This year BFFW revisits the feminist emphasis on the body and highlights its gendered, racialized and functional assumptions and connotations. The program contains different formats as short features and animations, including the documentary Life interrupted concerning the struggles of breast cancer and how it affects the lives and experiences of people in their different stages of diagnosis, treatment, and life beyond. As bodily capabilities differ, the amount of thought one puts on the topic and what we are allowed to do is often connected to societal norms. “Body Capability” is, therefore, an arena to reflect and feel familiar or to increase understanding and awareness.
