CIRCLE Women Doc Accelerator brings four films to Cannes Docs

CIRCLE Women Doc Accelerator, the exclusive annual training program for women-identifying documentary filmmakers, has announced the projects that will take part in its showcase during the Cannes Docs program of the Marché du Film 2023. Four alumnae of the programme have been selected to present their works-in-progress during the Cannes Film Market, following in the footsteps of previous winners who have gone on to achieve major success at international film festivals. This year’s showcase highlights four authors whose films intertwine deeply personal stories with the wider political landscapes that frame and determine them, showcasing a variety of directorial and cinematic approaches.

The selected projects include Ever Since I Knew Myself by Maka Gogaladze, which follows Maka on her journey around post-Soviet Georgia to observe children in the process of education while engaging in intimate conversations with her mother Nino. Rebeladas by Andrea Gautier and Tabatta Salinas centres around the «Cine Mujer» collective, a group of women filmmakers who gathered 40 years ago to make films dealing with taboo subjects, gender violence, and labour discrimination. 72 Hours by Anna Savchenko combines documentary theatre with media and family archives, while Tata written and directed by Lina Vdovîi and Radu Ciorniciuc tells the story of a journalist who discovers that her long estranged father who was violent to her as a child is now the person being abused.
