Female Fire Fighters

In rural Brandenburg, Germany, two women are standing their ground at the voluntary fire brigade.

2018, 30 Min, Documentary, 16:9, DCP,
(original) German title: Feuerwehrfrauen

Angela and Regina, tough and down to earth as they are, manage over and again to make their voices heard by their comrades. We join the two firewomen in their clubs and on nocturnal missions in rural Brandenburg, Germany. Every single day the two women prove themselves anew, relying on rough jokes as well as passion for this challenging job – and stand their ground in what seems to be a male domain.
