Docs Ireland 2023: Smoke Sauna Sisterhood

6:30 PM 22nd June 2023 Beanbag Cinema

Docs Ireland 2023 presents Smoke Sauna Sisterhood (2023), an immersive look at saunas as a place of healing and sisterhood.

In the darkness of a smoke sauna, women share their innermost secrets and intimate experiences, washing off the shame trapped in their bodies and regaining their strength through a sense of communion.

Winner of a directing award at Sundance 2023 – Smoke Sauna Sisterhood is a deeply moving, intimate and breathtaking approach to issues of trauma, healing, and community. Filmed almost as if a Vermeer or Rembrandt painting, the camera is never intrusive, never mechanical. Rather, the images move as the smoke – lingering, wafting, suspended briefly before disappearing and reappearing.

“A film that places you in the moment of relaxation, conveys the sense of a cleansing that is both physical and spiritual. Here, you are free to say anything, trivial or significant.” Screen Daily
