Description

In this timely and radical film about female desire, gender politics, and sexuality, director Maria Finitzo invites us to share intimate conversations with women on a mission to reverse a patriarchal legacy that excludes female empowerment through omissions and distortions. Sophia Wallace’s artwork on “cliteracy” acts as a powerful framing device as the film explores such issues as the lack of clitoral details in anatomy books, the need for redesigning toys for female pleasure, and the use of one’s own body as an act of resistance.  

This film has English language closed captioning available.  For more information about closed captions and accessibility at DOC NYC, please click here.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Maria Finitzo (Director), immediately following the film.
