- WHO CARES von Ina Ivanceanu
At some point in our lives each and every one of us needs other people to care for us, and almost all of us will sooner or later have to care for others – though this applies to women far more than men. Although this care work is an absolute prerequisite of life itself, it is not valued as such. WHO CARES is a personal exploration on film, an attempt by a woman filmmaker to discover why this is the case—and whether it has to stay that way.
