Queen of Hearts

86 min.DK/DocumentaryPortrait films

A film about the first-ever female president of the Danish Confederation of Trade Unions, Lizette Risgaard. The film follows her long, hard road to the top and the power struggles and male chauvinism she had to overcome before assuming the Presidency in 2015. But it is also a film about a woman with a political mission. In an age of individualism, when digitisation and globalisation are new factors in the labour market, her task is to unite the trade union movement and restore our faith in community.
