“Slow-burning but ultimately empowering. Builds its tension so subtly you don’t realize you’ve been holding your breath.” - The Hollywood Reporter
Life at work becomes unbearable for Orna. Her boss appreciates and promotes her, while making inappropriate advances. Her husband struggles to keep his new restaurant afloat, and Orna becomes the main breadwinner for their three children. When her world is finally shattered, she must pull herself together to fight, in her own way, for her job and a sense of self-worth.

REMEDY FOR RAGE
About Women in Film & Photography 2019
Women in Film is part of Objectifs' annual Women in Film and Photography showcase. In recent years, communities across the world have responded to enduring social, gender, racial and economic inequality through collective actions such as #Metoo, the Occupy movement and Black Lives Matter. At the heart of it, such movements are often fueled by anger and frustration at an ostensible lack of political will or means to effect systemic change.
Our fifth edition Women in Film presents the Singapore premiere of five international feature films that demonstrate how women filmmakers have created works that speak to local and global concerns, exploring how rage against discrimination, repression and injustice can be channeled into a force for awareness, action and change through art. Co-curated by Leong Puiyee and Kelly Leow.
