Oppressed Majority (Majorité Opprimée), an incredibly powerful short film by Eléonore Pourriat, focuses on a vulnerable man who is relentlessly harassed and subjected to the sexism and gender-based violence of a female dominated world. Ms. Pourriat made the film in 2010 in an effort to awaken the sleeping voice of feminism.
In France five years ago people asked me if being a feminist was so contemporary. Today no one asks. The feminist fight is more important now. Five years ago I felt like an alien. Now my film is making a buzz because rights are in danger. You see that in Spain with abortion rights. The whole thing about marriage for all, the homophobia and sexism. It is like a black tide today in France. – The Guardian Women’s Blog
