Dame Helen Mirren lends her voice to series of short films

Annex's Caroline Sasha Cogez Wins Why Women? Short FIlm Competition

Annex Films' Caroline Sasha Cogez has won the Why Women? short film competition. This beautifully powerful piece shows the strength in simplicity and answers the question, why women? Click here to view the film.

Academy Award-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren is the voice of 10 short films, that shed light on different aspects of girls’ and women’s opportunities and challenges in a structurally unequal world.

The themes of the films cover a vast range of topics including health, family life, sexual rights, education, political participation, economic equality and more. The viewer is invited to a poetic session of enlightenment and reflection, reminding us of the great responsibility we share in freeing the world from gender-based oppression.

The scripts were narrated by Helen Mirren and written by author Trine Beckett and young feminist activist Emma Holten. The visuals have been contributed by various directors, from all over the world, through an innovative talent competition hosted on crowd-sourcing platforms. The contestants had to create visuals complementing the audio with Helen Mirren – that framed the competition.
