Filmforum at Museum Ludwig
Television report, D 1980, 43 min.
Director: Gordian Troeller, Marie-Claude Deffarge
In a series of extraordinary ARD TV reports, the Luxembourg journalist, photographer and documentary filmmaker Gordian Troeller portrays activists of the “global South”. Having already devoted two films to the social upheavals in Iran, the multiple Grimme Prize winner meets Iranian professors, women’s rights activists, workers and peasant women in 1980 with his partner Marie-Claude Deffarge – active participants in the revolution, still full of energy and the hope that they can maintain and strengthen their socially active role.
