Lola Arias




99 years after the October Revolution, the argentinian director Lola Arias invites people between 8 and 84 to tell the stories of women at the intersection of the socialist idea. All of them bring together communist workers’ songs and lessons of others socialist countries, talk about surveillance in everyday life, punk concerts inside churches, discussions in theaters during the transition period, the burnt asylum centres in eastern Germany and the demands of refugees today. Their stories and subjective truths paint a picture of the personal in the political, of failure and reinvention.
