The Sirens

Irene Werner Stage, Denmark, 1978


The film, which must be viewed as a poetic documentary, is about three women living with their children in some council houses. In brief glimpses we witness their development from playing a passive role to entering a greater feminist whole. No matter where we live we have a story, sexuality, dreams, and energies which in certain situations we can set free.
