Ever Since I Knew Myself by Maka Gogaladze follows Maka, the daughter of a strict Maths teacher and high-maintenance mother, on her journey around post-Soviet Georgia to observe children in the process of education. Gogaladze is producing through Georgia's Formo Production, with Anke Petersen and Lilian Tietjen serving as co-producers for Germany's Jyoti Film.
Rebeladas by Andrea Gautier and Tabatta Salinas centres on the “Cine Mujer”, a group of women filmmakers who gathered 40 years ago to make films dealing with taboo subjects, such as gender violence, rape, femicide, clandestine abortion and labour discrimination. It is a co-production between Dafne Espinosa and Julio Fernández for Perro Rojo Films (Mexico), and Manuel Diaz, Juan Gautier and Andrea Gautier for Smiz and Pixel (Spain).
In 72 Hours by Anna Savchenko, a woman’s life has been incomplete ever since her son was wrongfully accused, sentenced to death and executed within a year. From a grieving mother, she transforms into a symbol of the struggle against the death penalty. It is being produced by Isabel de la Serna for Playtime Films in Belgium and Jean-Marie Gigon for Sanosi Films in France, in co-production with Volia Chajkouskaya for Volia Films (Estonia).
Tata, written and directed by Lina Vdovîi and Radu Ciorniciuc (Acasă - My Home [+leggi anche:

“Through the past three editions, the partnership with Cannes Docs has flourished and provided us with a valuable platform to showcase the outstanding films of our alumnae. CIRCLE projects previously showcased at Cannes have gone on to achieve major success at international film festivals, propelling the careers of their directors forwards and bringing women to the forefront of the documentary industry,” says CIRCLE programme director Biljana Tutorov. “This year’s showcase highlights four auteurs whose films intertwine deeply personal stories with the wider political landscapes that frame and determine them, showcasing a variety of directorial and cinematic approaches.”
