Directed by Patricia Drati

Produced by Maria Helga Stürup

Supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation

Through the lens of an intimate story about the filmmaker’s Ugandan ancestry, ’First Woman’ explores the universal search for belonging and identity.


In search of her roots, Patricia embarks on a journey to trace her own and humankind’s shared DNA heritage back to its origins, to the woman who connects us all, Mitochondrial Eve.

In development. The project is developed within the framework of EURODOC 2023.
