Sittin' On a Million (2008) DVD NTSC, color, min

Genre: Documentary

Keywords: Erotic

Mame Faye ran a world famous house of prostitution in Troy, New York for almost forty years (c. 1906 to 1941). Everyone past the age of retirement has a story - funny, sordid, unbelievable - about Troy's most famous madam. Sittin' on a Million presents these stories in all their contradictory glory, alongside vintage erotica, reenactments, and street performances. The documentary asks us to consider the role of memory and imagination in creating history, and reminds us about all those ordinary, extraordinary people erased from the official record.

The Abortion Diaries (2005) DVD NTSC, color, 30 mins min

Keywords: Body, Personal / Diary / Journal

The Abortion Diaries is a documentary featuring 12 women who speak candidly about their experiences with abortion. The women are doctors, subway workers, artists, activists, military personnel, teachers and students; they are Black, Latina, Jewish and White; they are mothers or child-free; they range in age from 19 to 54. Their stories weave together with the filmmaker's diary entries to present a compelling, moving and at times surprisingly funny "dinner party" where the audience is invited to hear what women say behind closed doors about motherhood, medical technology, sex, spirituality, love, work and their own bodies.
