FRANCE | 104 minutes | 2019

While filming Human, Anastasia Mikovia and Yann Arthus-Bertrand recorded footage of women around the world. That is where Woman began – an ambitious film with more than 2500 portraits of women from 50 countries. On a very sparse set, they candidly discuss work, social issues, body image, sexuality, motherhood, desire and, sadly, violence. In the post-#metoo era, this feature documentary is an essential panorama that reveals how women see the world today. With an admiring but unsensational eye on its subjects, Woman is an affectionate, honest take on women.
