Life tears them apart, each living their women’s combat. After a difficult relationship Pauline becomes a singer in a political activist band. Suzanne got out of her misery and works at the family planning. Then years later, the two women meet again during a feminist demonstration.

queer loox is a series of queer-feminist films, created in Luxembourg in December 2014. As an umbrella term, “queer” challenges the assumed binary of sexual orientations and gender identities. “Queer” is about non-normativity, creativity, and diversity far beyond homonormative culture. In its intended role as Luxembourg’s queer-feminist platform and meeting point for discussion, queer loox presents a wide range of feature films, documentaries and art installations on a regular basis.
