First director who told a story on the screen, the ones who paid prices during silent years, pioneers of controversial films, first editor of screen credits… They were all women. The film revealing the history of the condoned existence of women who wrote herstory on reels, and their pioneering and production, convey a feminist herstory onto the screen, with images from archives and interviews. And also calls for a restoration of honour, and asks everyone to stand in silence for these women who have written herstory on reels…
