Project – Superwoman

Austrian Cultural Forum, 28 Rutland Gate, London SW7 1PQ

Film by Barbara Caspar. Hildegart Rodríguez was born in Madrid in 1914 and was the lifelong project of her mother, Aurora Rodríguez, who had conceptualised her as a kind of superwoman. She was to become the great feminist activist of her country. After a breathtaking early career (she was fluent in numerous languages and had already written several books as a teenager), she was shot dead in her sleep by her mother at the age of 19. Barbara Caspar’s striking film fuses documentary and animation styles.  Feminist activists and sociologists consider the burning question of what mother-daughter relationships are like in terms of “only wanting the best” in today’s life plans. Austria, 2016, 90min, German with English subtitles, directed by Barbara Caspar
