Liberty, Equality and the Right to Vote

Mette Knudsen, Denmark, 1990

45 min.DK/Documentary

Around the turn of the century, women all over the world were struggling for the right to vote. This right was essential to them; without it they were unable to change any of the laws that oppressed them and condemned them to a life deprived of civil rights.
Through a montage of historical film footage, old photographs and reconstructions, »Liberty, Equality and the Right to Vote« brings these pages of history alive, allowing us to relive the way Danish women fought for 29 long years for the right to vote, finally gaining it in 1915.99

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
