Amsterdam, Oct 2013 – After joiningÂ LaDIYfest Amsterdam, we got invited by a wonderful queer feminist collective, to organize a screening together at Zsa Zsa Zine. If you would like to see ‘A Day in Her Life‘ videos, meet some interesting people and have some home-baked vegan goodies, join us on Saturday, 26th of October, at 15:00. Zsa Zsa Zine, ‘a zine and comic archive center seeking to collect feminist, queer and pic zines and comics,’ is located under Fort van Sjakoo, on Jodenbreestraat 24, Amsterdam.
A bit more about the ‘A Day in Her Life’ projects: In 2010 and 2012, we worked with women and transwomen connected to the sex industry in Amsterdam. The participants created a body of work which includes self-portraits in photography, a radio show about leaving home for a better life, and a series of short videos. The videos â€“ directed, shot, and edited by the participants themselves, reflect their hopes, dreams and struggles as they navigate through life. We will screen these videos at the center.
To accompany the screening, we will also have a short discussion about how multimedia training and storytelling can empower communities of women.
