The docu-film centres on the collective memories of women’s movements in Malta from the 1960s up until present day. An almost total absence of public, academic and journalistic records attesting to Maltese female lobbies or organisations led to the researchers interviewing women active in those days and tracing those incidents, events and places that were so important to their struggles. As all that we have are their voices and their testimony as the living record of those events. This film is a nod to them and to the others that will come.
