READ MY BREASTS is a documentary film about the Ukrainian activist Inna Shevshenko, the prominent founder of the feminist group FEMEN. Her political actions changed our world, but her struggle in the nudity reaped contradictions. Even torture. So the film is also one about disappointment and trauma. Inna has learned too much about our harsh world. But Inna does not give up: A film about modern feminism.
READ MY BREASTS is a film built in visual layers, in which Inna is put back into old press shots. We work with large print photographs of actions of FEMEN, where we retouched Inna out. She appears in the same place in the film, but she is real and can move in front of the photograph. She is standing in her own past, so to speak. This creates a strange alienation effect.
The film is an embodiment of the visual political art of FEMEN and shows new pop - feminism.
