Female Pleasure

Sunday, February 23, 7:00 PM

Genre: Documentary Runtime: 1 hr. 41 min. NR

Five courageous, smart and self-determined women break the silence imposed by their archaic-patriarch societies and religious communities in this powerful new documentary by Barbara Miller. With incredible strength and positive energy, they fight for sexual liberation and autonomy for all women as they break beyond religious rules and cultural barriers. But their victory comes at a high price: they all have experienced public defamation, threats, and prosecutions.

#FEMALE PLEASURE shows the universal mechanisms at work that determine the position of women today. Their story spans cultures, religions, and continents, from Japan and India and the Somali Muslim diaspora to the Hasidic community in Brooklyn and the Catholic clergy in Europe, and have come to the same conclusion: the female body is subjected to male lust and is first and foremost meant for procreation, without regard for female sexual pleasure and autonomy. These women decided to speak up. They are the ultimate example of how courage, strength, and zest for life can indeed alter societal structures. “The stories of their radicalization are engaging, and Miller’s deft editing and objective approach result in a surprisingly intimate and life-affirming film.”

–Maria Garcia, L.A. Times.

Genre: Documentary Runtime: 3 hr. 58 min. 

Long Strange Trip is the first full-length documentary to explore the fiercely independent vision, perpetual innovation, and uncompromising commitment to their audience that made the Bay Area band one of the most influential musical groups of their generation. Artfully assembling candid interviews with the band, road crew, family members and notable Deadheads, Bar-Lev reveals the untold history of the Dead and the freewheeling psychedelic subculture that sprouted up around it. The film also provides poignant insight into the psyche of late lead guitarist Jerry Garcia, whose disdain for authority clashed with his de facto leadership of the sprawling collective that kept the show on the road.

(100 Minutes)

On North America’s Pacific Northwest Coast, a young indigenous man undertakes the elaborate preparations for a potlatch – to make a name for himself by giving everything away. In Rome, Italy, a factory occupied by migrant families is transformed into a living museum, protected by a barricade of art: a model of resistance, and an invaluable gift. In the pirate utopia of Burning Man, a mutant bumblebee art car distributes honey in a post-apocalyptic desert landscape. Meanwhile, in Auckland, New Zealand, artist Mingwei Lee prepares to launch Sonic Blossom – a “transformative gift” of song. GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. In these days before Christmas, here’s a different, lovely take on giving gifts. “A beautiful, moving, and thought-provoking reflection on the creative process and the things that make us human.” – Jonathan Lethem, American novelist
