Catherine Deneuve is a submissive, house-bound trophy housewife (or “potiche”) who steps in to manage her wealthy and tyrannical husband’s umbrella factory after the workers go on strike and take him hostage. Acclaimed writer-director François Ozon twists the original play on its head to create his own satirical and hilarious take on the war between the sexes and classes. French spoken.

The year 1968 left a permanent mark on over half a million Yugoslavians, among them Maribor-based Metka Autor, a Metalna worker, who left for Germany at 28 in hope of a better tomorrow. In the film, she reminisces about the experience of Maribor immigrant workers while preparing dishes. Newsreel 80 records the day-to-day life of this 81-year-old, who generously and welcomingly understands the hardships of contemporary migrants.
