Shot by seven female directors, Force of Habit reveals moments of discrimination in women’s everyday lives.

With severity, but also humor, this anthology film shows how patriarchal power structures still determine and influence the women’s experience.

“The strength of each film is to make you experience as a spectator, whether you are a man or a woman, these revelatory instances that are sometimes so common, you tend to no longer pay attention to them.” – Extracts from the film’s press kit, written by film critic Iris Brey
