CPH:DOX follows up on last year's special focus series 'Made in Sweden' with an entirely new anthology of short films that focus on women. The Swedish Film Institute and the Swedish national broadcaster SVT last year launched the concept 'The woman in my life' and challenged people to shoot and submit films about this topic. Like with last year's controversial success film 'Dirty Diaries', the result is a lineup of highly different and artistically uncompromising films about the otherwise so romantic topic - and they have a cool feminist edge and the kind of aesthetic perfectionism that Swedes are experts at. From the story about two twin sisters' escape from Azerbaijan to the SM-looking (but totally asexual) relationship between a middle-aged woman and Alain Robbe-Grillet's somewhat older widow on an aristocratic French manor.
