Reconstruction Women’s Fund invites you to the premiere of film PASARELA! – Wednesday, May 29 at 8 p.m. at Yugoslav Film Archive, Kosovska 11, Belgrade.
Artstically engaged film PASARELA documents the performance under the same name, created in collaboration between Reconstruction Women’s Fund and Colombian theatre director Patricia Ariza. The film shows interconnectedness of social phenomena like violence against women, early marriages, femicide, and depicts lives and struggles on the margins of society.
PASARELA invites the sense of responsibility and reflection on our own lives, and gives a strong voice to the movement in struggle for better future!
Pasarela is a defense of the diversity of bodies, sizes, ages, traditions, choices, memories, voices, visions and ways of thinking of the women. (Patricia Ariza)
The main actors in the film are participants of the thorough process guided by Patricia Ariza – the Roma girls from Leskovac, Niš, Vlasotince, Pirot, Vranje and Bujanovac, and art activists from the group Act Women from Belgrade.

Reconstruction Women’s Fund opened the program Roma Girls’ Solidarity as a long term active learning process creating a space where girls from South Serbia (Leskovac, Nis, Vlasotince, Pirot, Vranje and Bujanovac) learn with and from each other, about the other and themselves, abut similarities as well as diferrences with their peers, with understanding that differences can connect people, and to envision oportunities for change in their own lives through combating isolation. It is the “space” imagined for sharing, exchange, creativity and fun.
