Menschenfrauen

Human Females

In @Human Females@, EXPORT addresses the sociopsychological conditions of women and the clash of changing gender identities in contemporary society through the story of journalist Franz S., who is dating four women at once, following a tightly clocked schedule. Little by little the women catch wind of Franz’s game. (MoMA)§ "VALIE EXPORT achieves in @Human Females@ what Godard strove for but failed in his @Every Man for Himself@ - a human view of a woman's place in a man's world." (Seattle Film Festival)
