Dear all,

As part of the #STEAMiamoci project that promotes the presence of women in the STEM disciplines, Protected content has organized the film festival "Where dare women" which tells stories of success all female.

The "beautiful statuette/Potiche" of the title refers to women who live in the shadow of their husbands, apparently without any thought or activity. Potiche is also Suzanne (Catherine Deneuve) wife of the owner of an umbrella factory, a middle-aged woman who takes her revenge after spending her entire life passively watching a careless and cynical husband, interested only in money. When her husband (Fabrice Luchini) falls into a deep psycho-physical crisis following factory tensions with workers claiming wage improvements, Suzanne not only takes her place in the company but above all manages to reopen the dialogue with the workers , thanks to the help of the chief worker, his ex-flirt, played by Gérard Depardieu. And in a few months, it brings the company back to its former glory.

Participation is free upon reservation. The movie lasts from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. The movie is in Italian speech.

You are invited to discuss the topic after watching the film in a bar near the cinema. Each country affords this topic in a different way. It's an opportunity to share our experiences.
