The Festival of Dhaka

To represent women with more respect in films and, more generally, to improve the role of women in the world of the big screen and the media: these are the requests that emerged during the International Conference on Women in the Cinema, organized as part of the thirteenth Dhaka International Film Festival, which was held in the capital of Bangladesh in January. The festival, which was this year entitled “Better Films, a better public and a better society," showed a succession of in total 180 films, with a special section dedicated to Australian and Asian cinema. And from the discussion, participated in by many, there has emerged, above all a shared concern for the portrayal of women as sex symbols. In particular in big Hollywood and Bollywood productions.
