«The Divine Order» (Die göttliche Ordnung) is the story about Nora, a young housewife and mother, living in a quaint little village with her husband and their two sons. The Swiss countryside is untouched by the major social upheavals the movement of 1968 has brought about. Nora’s life is not affected either; she is a quiet person who is liked by everybody – until she starts to publicly fight for the Swiss women’s right to vote, which the men are due to vote on in a ballot on February 7, 1971.
In Swiss German with English subtitles.
Ambassador Philipp Stalder will address the audience with a foreword, and the movie will be followed by a public discussion with Professor Akua Kuenyehia, former vice-president of the International Criminal Court in Den Haag, and advocate for the Affirmative Action Bill.
