Bande à part Films
Virginie, Petra and Estelle are stuntwomen. They put their bodies in danger to serve the violent imagination of a cinema which shows women no mercy.
Stuntwomen turns the camera towards those figures in the shadows who act being hit, killed or raped as dictated by the screenplay. This film interrogates our relationship with the portrayal of sexist violence in film and television. In moving away from the set and entering the private lives of these three protagonists, the film dedramatises the spectacular and becomes an action film of the intimate.
