    Documentary

    In the age of swiping right and one-night stands, the 40-something filmmaker takes a candid look at sex, love and the naked flesh, questioning how we relate to others. Venting her spleen — not without humour — on our relationship to sexuality, she uses her own body as a stand-in for an image of womanhood all too often censored by society. The female body as a polemic in a taboo-pushing film equally teasing and disturbing.
