The animated documentary ""Oma"" by Lenia Friedrich sees itself as an investigation into what gender roles two generations before her looked like and what it was like to live in the social system of that time. The film gives the grandmother the opportunity to tell what kind of expectations there were of her - based on gender. “The woman is the man's servant”, she grew up with this sentence from her father, Lenia Friedrich's great-grandfather. How much has this way of thinking changed from today, where can you still discover parallels? Her hands testify to her hard work as a housewife, for which she certainly rarely received recognition. Of course, there was never any monetary reward for this, the father was the breadwinner of the family, although she did the reproductive work in silence. Lenia Friedrich would particularly like to focus on the quiet work in the background, which makes it possible to maintain the entire society at all.
