2018 Una Banda des Chicas














I changed the bass for the camera,” says Marilina Giménez, who until 2013 and for six years played in the band Yilet with two girlfriends. That is the framework in which her autobiographical and choral documentary film was conceived. Its gender perspective confronts several dilemmas: Which is the women’s role in the current music scene? What happens when women make the music they choose? What happens when their bodies on stage are sensual and aggressive? A night tour through Buenos Aires, where different voices are part of "A Girl's Band". Come and dance.

Εισαγωγή και Q&A μετά την προβολή από την Άντυ Δημοπούλου, συντονίστρια του Διεθνούς Φεστιβάλ Κινηματογράφου της Αθήνας "Νύχτες Πρεμιέρας". Η ταινία προβλήθηκε στο πλαίσιο του αφιερώματος "Promising Young Women", σε επιμέλεια Άντυς Δημοπούλου, το οποίο πραγματοποιήθηκε τον Μάρτιο του 2022, με στόχο την ανάδειξη της ισοτιμία των φύλων. Μία καλλιτεχνική αφύπνιση, ή ακόμη και γνωριμία, με εκείνα τα χαρακτηριστικά της θηλυκότητας που πρωταγωνιστεί μπροστά, αλλά και πίσω από την κάμερα. Μέσα από τις προβολές και τις συζητήσεις με τις δημιουργούς τους, το αφιέρωμα εξερεύνησε κοινωνικοπολιτικά το ζήτημα της γυναικείας χειραφέτησης, όπως το κινηματογράφησαν σύγχρονες γυναίκες δημιουργοί, σε διάλογο με άλλες μορφές Τέχνης.

Introduction and Q&A after screening by Andy Dimopoulou, coordinator at Athens International Film Festival "Opening Nights". The film was presented as part of the "Promising Young Women" tribute, which was curated by Andy Dimopoulou; it took place in March 2022, aiming at capturing the female gaze in modern cinema and encouraging gender equality at all fields; an artistic awakening, or even acquaintance with all those women who work either in front of the camera or behind it. Through screenings and Q&A sessions, the "Promising Young Women" tribute explored the issue of women's emancipation on a sociopolitical level, as it is perceived by female directors and filmmakers, while combining cinema with other forms of art.
