Hijas De Cynisca(Daughters Of Cynisca) is a documentary film about gender inequality in sports, a reflection of the society in which we live. It gives voice to women who are role models, who have achieved great success in their careers and who will share their stories with us. They will expose this inequality, they will suggest ideas for its eradication, and they will tell us how much progress has been made and how much remains to be done, to change a society anchored in values that have become obsolete.
Even in an environment where gender discrimination and sexual violence are deeply rooted, heroes are bound to emerge. The performance of the Olympic female heroes, which shook Korea, was more touching because we all know what difficulties they had to overcome. Then now is the time to change. Let's make the changes, so that more women can live in the better world.
