Über die Veranstaltung

The cinema program Weltsichten will take place again this month on Friday, April 29th, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. in the ODEON cinema! Kino Weltsichten is a cinema series of the International Women's Film Festival Dortmund | Köln eV and is carried out together with the SPHS – VereintMenschen.

Arrive in a country whose language you don't speak, whose culture is alien to you and where orientation is difficult. This is where the Cinema: World Views project comes in. Film has a universal language and connects people, because where it fails, images make something immediately clear, understandable and comprehensible.

Once a month, Kino: Weltsichten presents films that show the role of women in the most diverse countries and cultures. Seeing things together and the subsequent conversation are important to us. Openness, tolerance and curiosity are the basis of these film talks, to which everyone with and without a migration background is cordially invited.

“Even an eighty-year-old man can marry a sixteen-year-old. But I'm sure when my song comes out that will change, at least a little bit."

Eighteen-year-old Afghan Sonita lives in Iran as an undocumented illegal migrant. She adores Rihanna, writes her own songs and pursues her dream of becoming a rapper. She has talent and hopes to find her own way and escape the fate of tradition. A social organization supports them. Then Sonita's mother arrives and wants to sell her daughter to an unknown man - her brother is waiting for the money to be able to marry. Sonita processes her fears and anger in a music video that quickly attracted international attention.
