Le temps des bûchers

| 56 min

Long métrage documentaire rendant hommage… aux sorcières. Celles d'hier, contre qui l'Église et l'État se sont acharnés, d'un commun accord; celles d'aujourd'hui, qui professent un retour à la connaissance de la déesse primitive, harmonie pacifique de toutes les formes de vie. Faisant suite à Sur les traces de la déesse, ce film constitue le deuxième volet d’une réflexion sur la spiritualité des femmes.

How were women’s roles different before the events in the film? Why does Christianity have such a negative effect on the freedom of women? How is feminism related to environmental awareness? Provide examples of cases throughout history where a group of people was persecuted and victimized (Holocaust, slavery, residential schools, etc). Compare and contrast these examples with the film.
