Macedonia: fighting patriarchy on-screen

Published on

the ArtivistCreative Home

Teona Strugar Mitevska is a self-professed 'femartivist' who has been a film director since the early 00s. Each of her movies strives to challenge sexism, and particularly the way it is manifest in her home country of Macedonia. Her latest film 'God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya' explores the sensitive issue of religion, and the place of women within it.
