The presentation will focus on the project „November“.
The project deals with of one of my closest teenage friend called Andrea Wolf. It starts from a S-8 feminist martial arts film both made together. Andrea Wolf later ended up being considered an enemy of the state. She went underground and joined the PKK, the Kurdish guerilla. She was shot to death in 1998 in Kurdistan, most probably by members of the Turkish army in an extralegal execution. The presentation deals with the question of what is left of the dreams of left-wing internationalism in the era of global war against terrorism. It deals with the role of globally travelling images of female resistance in popular culture and their political implications and with the icon of the female militant.
