Six Women Search for Africa

director: Josef Laufer, Leo Marten
original title: Šest žen hledá Afriku
country: Czech Republic
year: 1934
running time: 17 min.

synopsis

In the early 1930s, the famous race car driver Eliška Junková and the Aero factory organized the Aero Blue Team automobile expedition, in which four cars were sent to North Africa, three of which were crewed by women. The expedition, the purpose of which was to promote the resilience of Aero cars in the North African desert, is documented by a film that ambivalently addresses both women’s emancipation in the context of a male-dominated sport as well as the issue of colonial domination.
