Brief Synopsis:

Incredible coverage of 4 years in the office of the Swedish foreign minister, Margot Wallström, known for her fearless feminist agenda and sharp, empathic mind. We witness her arduous negotiations with Saudi Arabia, Israel and North Korea, as well as a highly competitive campaign for a seat in the UNSC, followed by a crash course in keeping it cool in the face of death threats and intimidation.

Director’s note:

The Feminister is a character- and scene-driven feature doc, deeply serious but also humorous. The narration is mostly led by time in a real life “Borgen”- mixture of world politics, tense scenes and private reflections of loneliness, joy and fear.
Rough observational style footage is blended with repetitive moody poetry; winter, summer, dull, bright, hard, with hints of travel and story.
