MovieLog: Think – Challenge – Question

Join us for a non-profit film screening and debate for women!

A cooperation between Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Pakistan, Center of Excellence in Gender Studies, QAU, and the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD

This monthly event features a variety of national and international movies and documentaries for an audience of young women – students, professionals, and other interested – and offers a space for discussion and diverse issues.

The movie series revolves around the following clusters of topics, drawing experiences from Asia, America and Europe.

  • Tales of transgression, struggle and empowerment
  • Violence encounters – spaces of violence
  • Narrating women in politics – mainstreaming, malestreaming or sidestreaming?
  • Life, love, marriage and family matters
  • Gender moves


What will we do?

Each session starts with a brief introduction from a resource person, which provides a short input on the topic at hand, the filmmaker, the context as well as outlining some ideas for the MovieLog the discussion following the film screening. Regularly, external guests either linked to the making of the film or its topic will be invited to give an additional perspective and participate in the discussion. And then there is the movie to watch, of course!
