Program: Über-Bilder: Projizierte Weiblichkeit(en) Ein ganz normaler Tag + Vorfilme

Impulses to adapt the mass-media-designed image of women to the realities of women’s lives were present especially during the Kreisky era. The television show Prisma, for example, in particular, when directed by Trautl Brandstaller, was a feminist trendsetter, that led to heated debates about women’s role models. The journalist, author, and filmmaker Heide Pils made numerous television films dealing pointedly and often ironically with female reality; during this era, and also later.
