THE DILEMMA OF DESIRE is a film about the clitoris and the far-reaching ramifications of the erasure of female sexual pleasure from the anatomy books and popular culture. The vision of sex that permeates our culture overwhelmingly reflects male desire, and this imbalance is both a symbol and a symptom of our society’s systematic marginalisation of female perspectives. In this thought-provoking and entertaining documentary, we meet academics, artists, activists and designers who make the clitoris the focus of their fight for gender equality.
At the screening Monday 12 October, there will be an introduction by Rebecka Lorenzson from the feminist magazine FETT.
This film can be streamed on BIFF+ 12–31 October 2020. Limited amount of rentals on BIFF+.
