The film series My Touch Makes Me Visible! is a kaleidoscope of aesthetic forms that reflects the polyvocal positions of feminisms from different histories and various women’s experiences.

Feminist film series
Bodies Protest & Resist

The current film series My Touch Makes Me Visible! is an exploration of how filmmakers have used the skin of the screen to draw us closer to the sensory experiences of women from across different geographic terrains and from varied political contexts. The "chapter" Bodies Protest and Resist is part of the film series. It is a selection of films which includes the work of Hito Steyerl and Sarah Abu Abdallah to reflect patriarchal structures and the broad spectrum of violences that continue to ravage the lives of so many women globally but also the triumphant ways that women survive in spite of these continued repressions.
