December 2nd: THE DIVINE ORDER


Dir:  Petra Biondina Volpe
Switzerland, 2017 German/ w. subtitles 95 mins
Cast:  Marie Leuenberger, Maximilian Simonischek

Switzerland, 1971: Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives with her husband and their two sons in a peaceful little village. Here, in the Swiss countryside, little or nothing is felt of the huge social upheavals that the movement of May 1968 has caused. Nora's life, too, has been unaffected; she is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone - until she begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women's right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7th, 1971.
