Femme, which has played at numerous international film festivals, is currently available for worldwide release. Vision Films will be introducing the documentary for the first time at the upcoming Marché du Film in Cannes.
Femme is a Celebration of Women around the World transforming and healing our society. As executive-producer Sharon Stone explains: ’Femme’ is an innovative effort to illuminate the thoughts, voices and insights of women the world over. It is an opportunity for women to be heard and to hear one another in an unfiltered regard on issues that touch the core of the human condition both elegantly and eloquently. We have much to learn about each other and from each other.
I have been a fan of Emmanuels work since I screened ‘The Invocation,’ said Lise Romanoff, Managing Director and CEO of Worldwide Distribution. ’Femme’ is truly a thought-provoking film and I hope our buyers enjoy it.
Femme aims to be a movie that will empower women and inspire them to keep leading in all areas of society: in religion as well as in economics and politics as well as an education for men to better understand their female partners and to be more in touch with their feminine side in order to become more compassionate and attentive. For Mother Miriam Benedict from Italy to conclude: It is obvious at this time in History that ‘Femme’ is immediately needed. For those who have eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts which are concerned with the continuation of Life on this planet, the bringing of the women of the world in ‘Femme’ is a powerful tool. I hope and pray that the men who see ‘Femme’ will begin to see women as collaborators and not as threats to be violently subjugated.
