Remarkable Women – Out of the Shadows shines a light on untold stories about the strength, leadership and influence thousands of women had on global literature, art, politics, culture, and science. Our anthology series features stories told by a diverse and talented group of primarily female filmmakers from several European countries, including Finland, Romania, Germany, Poland, and Ireland.
