Solberg's first film The Interview (A entrevista) launched one of her keenest interests: grappling with the condition of women in society. It was a pioneering film in various senses, not only in Brazil but worldwide. The film foreshadowed themes which would sustain the second wave of feminism, and it is usually regarded as the first Brazilian feminist film.
Her feminist activism continued to permeate her filmmaking practice in the 1970s as Solberg became involved in a collective creation with the International Women’s Film Project. This resulted in Solberg's Women Trilogy, notably comprising of The Double Day (A dupla jornada). The film follows women in different countries of Latin America as they reflect on their living conditions.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Helena Solberg, hosted by curator Natalia Sobrino Christofoletti.
