Event Details

Co-presented with the Boston Women’s Film Festival.

A vérité film about female sexual desire and the powerful gender politics that revolve around NOT acknowledging female desire. We know that the female body is the primary metaphor for sexuality, saturating advertising and mainstream erotic imagery. However female sexual desire–what women actually want–is left out of the conversation. To make matters worse, cultural, religious, and political forces in fact punish women for expressing their natural desire. Discussion with director and producer Maria Finitzo and subjects Sophia Wallace and Dr. Stacey Dutton to follow.

Watch the trailer!


This season, we are thrilled to bring you twelve films with a focus on social justice and equity. These films will be screened synchronously at 7pm every Thursday followed by live moderated conversations with filmmakers and activists.
