I Want to be Weird

Kitty Von-Sometime is a British artist who has lived in Iceland for eight years. She is mostly known for 'The Weird Girls Project', an ongoing art project only for women. Each project is a single episode which is unique and has it's own concept. Kitty chooses a group of women to participate for each episode but one of the main goals of the project is to increase the women's self-confidence, strengthen their body image and encourage them to release their inhibitions. The documentary follows Kitty in her daily life as well as when she works on her episodes and other art. There are many women in Kitty's life, they inspire her and her projects encourage and strengthen the women that participate in different ways. The result is extraordinary.
