ongoing struggle

In a short interview, filmmaker Monika Treut talks of the advances in the Berlin film community, and in real life, regarding the visibility of LGBTQ. She notes similar trends in other countries. However, she also points out that, in countries such as the US, acceptance is just as likely to be restricted in response to political trends, while, in countries such as Poland, art, especially as a medium to further LGBTQ rights, is unacceptable. She further notes that women, in general, face obstacles in being recognized and accepted as filmmakers.

This haibun (with haiku couplet) is in response to Haiku Review Challenge by The Secret Keeper.  The short film offered for review is An Interview with Monika Treut, found on Vimeo.
