    Stuntwomen 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 in the world of cinema.
    The #metoo movement 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?
