At times tragicomic, at times frightening, this thought-provoking feature film takes a close look at discussions on diversity that range from empowerment to tokenism
In order to avoid being “canceled”, an association called “House of Womxn” must immediately change the panel that will be participating in an international women’s conference in order to satisfy a diversity checklist. As a result, the very diverse panelists clash in the empty clubhouse, revealing some painful differences at first, but then some affirming commonalities as well.
The world premiere will be hosted with the Frameline festival.
