A group of women on a 1,200-km pilgrimage from St. Gallen to Rome for the same rights for men and women in the Catholic Church. An amazing journey about equality, doubt and faith. Documented by three students on a journey into the unknown.
The documentary shows the large group, mainly consisting of women, on their pilgrimage to Rome. In addition to the rigours of the pilgrimage that the group is confronted with, the film makes tangible the longing desire for a lively church that seeks out new forms of faith and recognises the women’s charisma as an enrichment tangible. The events are viewed from different perspectives: On the one hand, the initiators of the project, the pastoral assistants Hildegard Aepli and Esther Rüthemann and the priest Franz Mali get the opportunity to comment and say a few words, and on the other hand the three film students, two of which have no religious affiliations, accompany the pilgrimage with a camera and microphone and take a look at the issues of women and men on a pilgrimage. The quest of women’s rights, still a taboo issue in the Catholic Cchurch is discussed in a unique way fon the film “Habemus Feminas!” and portrayed using impressing imagery.
Young, committed filmmakers dedicated one and a half years of hard work and spared no expense for this documentary. An unconventional documentary about a controversial issue.
