Human Females

Human Females portrays journalist Franz S.´s relationships with four women in which he spends time with each one according to a precise schedule. But after seeing through this game in which Franz always comes out on top, the four attempt to break out of the cycle. (...)
This story´s linear narrative is interrupted by flashbacks which provide information about the characters´ pasts, dream sequences illustrating their psychological deformities, and artificial scenes of role-playing. In these sequences, Valie Export continues the performances which she developed before and during the making of her films.
