Film „Unwanted daughters of Montenegro“ by Iva Parađanin was screened on Saturday at the 9th Underhill Festival within the program In Focus.

After the film executive director of WRC, Maja Raičević talked with Iva Parađanin.

Iva explained that she got the idea for the movie after campaign “Unwanted” by Women’s Rights Center and agency McCann was launched, and that she received support in contacting people from Svetlana Slavujević, journalist who did a research paper regarding the problem of sex selective abortions.

Through discussion with young, educated Montenegrin women and activists the film gave an interesting perspective of attitudes towards women in Montenegrin society.
