OUR BODY (2023, dir. Claire Simon)

In one of the most talked about films from this year's Berlinale, veteran documentarian Claire Simon observes the everyday operations of the gynecological ward in a public hospital in Paris.

In the process, she questions what it means to live in a woman’s body, filming the diversity, singularity and beauty of patients in all stages of life. Through these many encounters, the specific fears, desires and struggles of these individuals become the health challenges we all face, even the filmmaker herself.
