Documentary film about Ejti Šti, by Gregor Bajt
Gregor Bajt's documentary about the painter Ejti Štih was created in 2018 at the premiere opening of the ROJO Y ORO exhibition in the Manzana gallery in the painter's Bolivian home of Santa Cruz. The film reveals the background of the artist Ejti Štih while depicting the current topic - the right to abortion. In some parts of the world, battles are being fought successfully, women are securing ownership over their bodies and the freedom to decide how to treat them. Elsewhere, we are witnessing the repeal of almost fifty-year-old laws that once enabled women to have this right - the case of the USA and the ruling of the Supreme Court on June 24, 2022.
The documentary film can be viewed throughout the exhibition in the lobby of the Bled Festival Hall in Slovenian language.
