It’s Raining Women

Details

Finnish migrant filmmaker Mari Soppela travels the world as she takes us on a five-year investigation into the complex realities of the glass ceiling.

Simultaneously light-hearted and deadly serious, the film shines a light on a much misunderstood phenomenon and acts as a rallying cry to everyone everywhere to continue the fight for gender equality.
