Who were prehistoric women? What did they look like? What was their daily life like? What was the division of labour between men and women?
Cave art and hunting for men, gathering and household work for women? What if reality was more complex?
The film questions this anthropological and ethnographic model, a stereotype now being disputed by the scientific community…Today, a new generation of researchers, many of them women, is shaking up this model. These scientists are questioning museum collections, setting up revolutionary protocols for analysis, and defining new excavation methods to finally make the invisible visible. Thanks to their relentlessness, the presence of prehistoric women is emerging. Leaning on a round-the-world tour of the most recent scientific discoveries, the film will take the viewer inside geneticists’ laboratories, to excavation sites, into the reserves of research centers…
