Now you see it
Force of Habit Anthology Series is a film sensation created collectively by fifteen filmmakers, artists, researchers and social influencers. It is a collection of 11 episodes, a feature film titled Force of Habit and a campaign linked to them, that reveal the hidden way power is exercised on women in both private life and in society. The short films are fiction but the scripts are derived from the writers’ own observations from real life. The films depict everyday moments that we have learnt to see as normal but that prove to be absurd under closer examination.
