International Women’s Day Charity Screening

Tickets: $35 from The Substation
We Want Roses Too (Singapore Premiere)
/ 2007 / 89min / Italy / Rated R21
Director: Alina Marazzi
“Vogliamo Anche Le Rose” (We Want Roses Too) is an award-winning film that portrays the revolutionary changes brought on by the sexual revolution and the feminist movement in Italy during the 1960s and 1970s. It is an amazing technicolor spectacle that documents the shared feelings of the feminist movement: that women could no longer support a society based on the patriarchal family, on the power of "husbands" and on the supremacy of males, which requires women to be efficient mothers, obedient wives and virtuous daughters. It is a celebration of advancement and progress in the area of women’s rights and the feminist movement.
