Heroines

Content warning:
Jersey, 1940. Threatened by the arrival of German troops on the island, Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, two lesbian and Jewish artists, decide to resist. Armed with their imagination and an 8mm camera, they create an army of "nameless soldiers" who panic the Nazi machine into a frenzy. This film reclaims the forgotten and fascinating True story of Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, surrealist artists who faced the Nazis during World War II. Director Astre Desrives revisits history by adding a queer and surrealist aesthetic, made of collage, surimpressions and electro music into this film, totally joyful and creative.
