Femme Fantastic: The Carnal Screen
Sexy films produced and directed by three local artists: Peggy Ahwesh, Katherine Bauer and MM Serra.
This program of films will present an alternative image of the body, of sex, and of intimacy – images that are about individuality and freedom of expression, rather than standardization and profit. They present truthful depictions of a vital part of human nature; they facilitate the cathartic release of repressed anxieties; and they allow us to think critically and engage in serious conversations about the complex political issues that surround representations of sexuality in contemporary society.
