MEDEA MENSCH is a multidimensional and interdisciplinary short film, which combines and contrasts elements from theater and film. In terms of content, the film deals with the narrative of the Greek antagonist Medea from the play by Euripides as a hysterical, vengeful woman and aims to restore her humanity and self-determination.
The film addresses current gender politics, as well as the often one-sided portrayal of mothers in classical works, in the media, and in our society.
