"This short film is a portrait of a dancer and poetic criticism questioning the power over female bodies. It’s everywhere: patriarchal systems, schools, the government, religious institutions, society’s minds. The short draws parallels from the dancers upbringing in one of Poland’s strictest dancing schools and to today’s patriarchic system, in which an institution has more say over a female’s body than herself. Poland compared to other European countries still the strictest abortion laws, a torn past, battle wounds and the stale old systems, that we try to break. MY WOMB is a love letter for everyone who stands up for themselves."
