Directed by Barbara Miller (Germany and Switzerland, 2018, 97 min.). Digital. English, French, German, and Japanese with English subtitles.

New England Premiere

An ex-Hasidic Jew from Brooklyn, a Somali-British anti-FGM activist, a Japanese manga artist, a German ex-nun, and an Indian sex educator promoting love marriages. Five extraordinary women from vastly different cultures, all confronting the way culture and religion shape women’s relationships to sex and pleasure. Through conversation, education, and art, these women aim to shift the power balance that has disenfranchised them and regain control of their own bodies.

“A surprisingly intimate and life-affirming film.” —Los Angeles Times

“The suffering of the five protagonists in #Female Pleasure is transformed into strength and courage personified.” —Cineuropa

Screened at HotDocs 2019.
