  • Franke Kitchen World, Shanghai

A special feature film screening on the eve of International Women's Day 2022, a film adapted from the novel "Løvekvinnen" (The Lion Woman) by Erik Fosnes Hansen about a girl born with hypertrichosis - a congenital condition, and her struggles growing up around her father and society.

Film screening is supported by The Royal Norwegian Consulate in Shanghai, and Franke Kitchen, Shanghai.

Screening will be followed by a short discussion.


The story follows Eva, who is born with hypertrichosis, a congenital condition that causes excessive hair growth over her entire body. Her father grieves not only for the loss of his wife during childbirth, but also for his daughter's abnormal appearance. As Eva's life unfolds, she is in contact with those who shun, embrace, and abuse her, yet she survives with intelligence, wit, and inner beauty.

Film comes in Norwegian (language) with English subtitles.
