Six women, Zina, Cherifa, Halima, Fatima, Mina and Jamila, who live in the rural areas of Morocco and Tunisia share their dreams and their fight for emancipation through their work. They're connected by a common goal to achieve recognition for their professional identity and gender. They have created farming cooperatives where they combine their ancient knowledge with the development of new products for the local and international markets.
Carlotta Piccinini, born in Bologna on the 9th of August 1979. She's a director and visual artist. Since the beginning of her artistic career, she has been working across different areas, moving from video art and social documentary. That's how she combined her passion for Aesthetics and digital technology with her effort for the defence of human rights. To her, video art and documentary represent an area of constant experimentation, thanks to which she developed new stylistic and narrative codes and found visibility in different festivals, both national and international.
