Feminista is a feminist road movie. In 2015, Myriam Fougère joined a group of young activists who had formed a caravan to travel across twenty European countries – from Turkey to Portugal, by the way of the Balkans, to Italy, Spain and Portugal. Revealing how this new breed of politicized women inhabit their personal lives, Feminista documents how a dedicated international group of young feminists traveled across miles and territories to unite forces with other women. Fighting oppression, participating in local gatherings, supporting homegrown feminist activists, we watch face-to-face encounters and experience how understandings of local struggles can build alliances of support.
Feminista is a journey to the heart of global feminism, a breath of solidarity. Feminista provides a rare glimpse into a widespread feminist movement, possibly one of the largest least recognized mass political movement in the world today
