FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE (UNTER ALLER AUGEN)

FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE
© Bildersturm Filmproduktion

In Bangladesh, in Benin, in the DR Congo, yet also in Germany: violence against women is ever present. The film delves into the lives of women who have been subjected to horrific violence, yet managed to fight their way free. They talk about the violence that has been inflicted upon them, their struggle for survival, their hopes and their current attempts to build a new life. And the men? Many of them describe violence against women as a normal part of their everyday lives. If a woman has been hit, she deserved it. If she defends herself, he threatens to take away her children. Claudia Schmid spent intense moments with the protagonists. She captured images of their painful memories and dreams. It is only the strength of these women that allows them to break out of a multi-generational cycle of violence.


Claudia Schmid was born in Cologne in 1956 and studied Painting, Sculpture and Concept Art in Vienna and Düsseldorf. A freelance director since 1991, her films include: a portrait about the artist Gottfried Helnwein THE SILENCE OF INNOCENCE (2009), the documentary about Heinz Emigholz THE REDRAWN WORLD (2009), RICHARD DEACON – IN BETWEEN (2013), VOICES OF VIOLENCE (2015), and FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE (2016).
