In the early 1970s, Helena Solberg exiled herself to the US where she lived for over 20 years. She was a founding member of the collective Women's Film Project, which engaged in a counter-writing of History from the perspective of women. 'The Double Journey', the group's second feature film, examines the invisibility of the female workforce in Latin America (Argentina, Mexico, and Bolivia) through the oppression endured in factories, militant groups, and the domestic environment. The film wagers on an emancipatory consciousness that would lead to the reconfiguration of the patriarchal social order.
