Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Milan, Italy)
Thessaloniki (Greece)


Rosa Barotsi is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Milan, Italy) working on CineAF: Women's Films in Italy 1965-2015, a project on gender inequality in the Italian film industry. She trained at the University of Cambridge, where she received her Ph.D. in 2014. She has previously held a postdoctoral position at the ICI Berlin, where she developed a project on Slow cinema and debt. Along with Clio Nicastro and Saima Akhtar, she co-founded the In Front of the Factory: Cinematic Spaces of Labour research collective in 2016. She has published work that focuses on the intersections between film, gender and labour, with an emphasis on Greek and Italian cinema.


I participate as the co-organizer in the project "The Purple Meridians", an international meeting with 16 female filmmakers from different countries (Catalonia, Kurdistan, Italy, Greece), to discuss the difficulties faced by professionals with a female identity and non-binary people in the film and audiovisual industry, to break down the borders they have encountered and to make proposals for improvement, creating a network of support and exchange for future collaborations on an axis that crosses that crosses whole of Europe, from its eastern to its western border.
