Ire. Feminine noun: wrath, rage, fury, indignation.
Ire is the protest of women against those who
oppress, despise and kill. Their eyes, tightly
framed, stare at the camera: their stare is
compelling. They are the masses and, from
the anaphoric statement “I am”, sing out the
violence suffered by women. In this film shot
in four languages, Valérie Massadian uses the
weight of her words and the strength of gate
to build a babel call to resistance. Among these
striking gazes, are the luminous eyes of a woman
carrying in her womb a female child, yet to be
born, but already angry. (Louise Martin-Papasian
& Claire Lasolle)
