These Hands + Women Hold Up The Sky Event
These two short documentaries explore women's labour past and present.
These Hands (1992) is a quiet tribute to women at the very bottom of the international economic order that ultimately deepens into a mediation on human labour itself.
Women Hold Up The Sky (2020) tells the story of how women activists affected by mining and other forms of large-scale extractives are deeply engaged in resistance and an active struggle to take back control of their land, their rights, their bodies and their lives.
Join us on Sunday 22 August at 6pm for a live discussion about Women Hold Up The Sky and the work of women activists fighting against extractives across the African continent.
