Bristol (UK) will host a screening of the film “Shooting the War: Women” as part of the celebration of the centenary of International Women’s Day.

First shown on BBC4, Colin’s film uses home movies shot in Britain and Germany to provide a strikingly different perspective on women’s roles and experience. From Land Girls to Spitfire pilots, for many it offered opportunities they’d never seen in the 1930s.

The film was one episode of a three-part series produced by Available Light and shown on BBC Four, the other episodes being “Men” and Children.”
