Dangerous Women:

Die Unheimlichen Frauen by Birgit Hein

San Francisco Art Institute

Co-sponsored by Goethe-Institut San Francsico.

At the forefront of European radical and feminist filmmaking since the 1960s, Birgit Hein presents The Mysterious Women “Since the beginning of history women have also been perpetrators. They can be equally brutal and criminal as men, and of course, just as horny. This film shows us women soldiers, watchmen, and criminals as well as child-bearing, drunk, masturbating, circumcised, dismembered victims… It’s also about me…” (BH)
