The year 1975 is declared “year of the woman”. On this occasion, Bernard Pivot invited Françoise Giroud, then Secretary of State for Women, on his popular TV show. A collective of women filmmakers, Les Insoumuses, parody the misogynistic statements from the show in a provocative way.
Bearing witness to the unabashed misogyny in 1970s France, this documentary irreverently distorts a TV broadcast to reveal the appalling and absurd extremes of systemic patriarchal prejudice. Through playful means, four women filmmakers—Les Insoumuses—make us laugh at a situation worth crying over.
