Here are some brief thoughts on the films that played as part of the BORN OF WOMAN collection at Fantasia 2022

Odd comedy drama with pointed things to say about the patriarchal structure of society. Whether it works for you or not will be determined by your feeling toward the tone.

Bleak dystopian tale of a hopeful story told between two women trapped in factory with no future.
Beautiful but the counterpoint is unbelievably sad.

More sadness of the dystopia we are heading towards. Ultimately more a Polemic than a thriller.
DAUGHTER OF WITCHES

Folk horror tale that just kind of misses
DON’T GO WHERE I CAN’T FIND YOU

This is a ghost story that reminds me of the horror stories for Christmas series from the BBC
