Untitled - Uma Pedra no Sapato
A film by Patrícia Vidal Delgado
Isa is a young outreach worker who uses forum theatre as a tool to promote
awareness and discussion of social issues. The gulf between theory and practice
widens when her work is mirrored by her reality. !
“A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
Maya Angelou
There is a tacit understanding that the women of my generation align themselves
with the basic principles of feminism and condemn misogynist attitudes. However,
despite being aware of their rights as autonomous individuals, I have seen many
young women entrapped in abusive relationships while still in their teens or early
This fact is of great concern to me and my intention, as a writer and director; is to
enquire why we, as women, vehemently censure violence as committed by male
perpetrators against our sisters, friends and mothers; but often accept or excuse
abusive behaviour in our partners? Why is it, when it comes to our personal
relationships, we can't practise what we preach?
