Woman is a documentary being directed by noted French Photographer / Filmmaker Yann Arthus Bertrand and Anastasia Mikova. The documentary is currently being filmed in 40 countries across the world comprising 3000 interviews and is coming to Cairns 17-20 August.
Woman was born of a desire to see the world through a woman’s eyes. Then the questions started to flow. What are the stages making a woman’s passage from little girl to 80-year old grandma, what are her dreams and hopes as well as her greatest fears and scars? What does she expect of life, society and men? What is a woman’s relationship to her body and to deduction? What part do appearances and beauty play in her life? How does motherhood change her life? What do we know of female desire, and why do certain cultures find it so frightening?
The position of women within a country is one of the best indicators of how healthy it is as a society. In broader terms, it might also be the most fitting of symbol of humans’ capacity to achieve incredible progress in a very short space of time and of our propensity to equally rapid regression.
Weak, stupid, talkative, jealous, frivolous and hysterical, or else delicate, sweet, devoted, modest: all these things are allegedly part of a woman’s nature. But are they really?
Woman might provide some initial answers to these questions. This film will take us to all  four corners of the world to meet the only people who can tell us – all the women with such vastly different lives, shaped by their culture, their faith and their family history.
Woman aims to act as a messenger for all these thousands of individual voices, weaving them together into a compassionate portrait.
