Smoke Sauna Sisterhood
“Smoke Sauna Sisterhood is a window into an enviable cultural practice of solidarity, as the safe communal space provides a place for gossip and laughter as well as the expression of pain.”
“The word ‘intimate’ is too often attached to films; Anna Hints’s mesmeric documentary Smoke Sauna Sisterhood, however, truly earns that descriptor.”
“The dissection of headless women’s bodies is often in cinema a hallmark of the male gaze, but here this approach does not objectify. Instead, the overall effect is a vivid sweat-drenched embodiment of the sauna’s spirit – a collective physical experience which transcends the individual in favour of sisterhood.”
