ACTING PAIN  portrays three women stunts in changing   times and offers a look at how relationships of power and hierarchy between genders  are anchored in bodies and shape them in the world of cinema.

The #metoo movement initiated in Hollywood in 2017 offers a new momentum to the denunciations of sexist relations specific to the film industry. However, the cinematographic representations of women are too entrenched to change quickly: women’s roles in action cinema are mostly victims. The camera focuses on cuts, sexual mutilation, blood, crying.  But who carries the weight of this exalted violence ? Behind the characters on the screen, who is the physical person who jumps under a car to escape a killer ?
