No Mercy – The Ruthless Gaze

“Women make tougher films!” Ever since cult director Kira Muratova gave this thought to the young filmmaker Isa Willinger at the beginning of her film career, it has been stuck with her. How come, since “female” tends to be equated with “empathic” and “sensitive”? With this film she sets out on a journey to the great female directors of our time.
The question NO MERCY raises goes deep: Where do we really stand today in terms of women, men and power?

A co-production with Tondowski Films (GER).
