It’s been 50 years since the infamous panel discussion »A Dialogue on Women‘s Liberation« took place in New York‘s Town Hall: Norman Mailer, Germaine Greer, Jill Johnston, Jaqueline Ceballos and Diana Trilling argue, laugh and perform on stage. In the audience Susan Sontag, Cynthia Ozick and Betty Friedan. The intellectual elite of New York. Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker later iconized the event with their documentary »Town Bloody Hall«. 50 years later in Berlin – Saralisa Volm and RP Kahl fight against and with each other as Germaine Greer and Norman Mailer in a reenactment for the theatre stage and continue the discussion outside of their stage roles together with Luise Helm, Heike Melba-Fendel and Celine Yildirim. The rehearsals for the reenactment condense into a profound exchange of blows in the now, the age of »Me Too«. What the hell has happened in the past 50 years? A playful documentary about the fierce beginnings of feminism and their reverberation in our days that a Christoph Schlingensief would have embraced.
