In Her Footsteps by Margarida Paiva

“In Her Footsteps” is a film originally made as a digital city walk in Grønland, an area in Oslo, made for the project Multiwalks, artistic walks in intercultural cities. A female voice leads the audience through eight different locations telling stories of people and places. In each location one can see a short video and meet a person. In the frame of the 100-year jubilee of women’s suffrage in Norway in 2013, these stories focus on women and their place in Grønland. Throughout the years, distinguished women had a strong position in this area and stood together to fight, help and protect their families and the ones in need. Today the women’s community is still remarkable in Grønland and parallel stories are drawn between past and present.
