Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Film at the Tribeca Film Festival and Switzerland’s entry at the Academy Awards this year, The Divine Order is set in Switzerland in 1971 where, despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, women were still denied the right to vote. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger) is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement.
Followed by a Q&A with director Petra Volpe
