Bad Girl

THU, FEB 21 / 7 pm
DIR. MARIELLE NITOSLAWSKA
2001 | FRANCE | 55 MIN

How does imagery influence the development of sexual identities and how might representations of sexuality change the way we understand it? The male-dominated multi-billion-dollar mainstream pornography industry recreates a restrictive image of sexuality, but growing numbers of women directors are offering alternative visions of female desire.

Bad Girl investigates explicit representations of female sexuality by women, exploring the pragmatic and philosophical questions they pose, with emphasis on the ways in which the creation of women-friendly pornography confronts and alters the expectations of male consumers. Ultimately, Nitoslawska is concerned with how we comprehend desire, gender and identity, how we understand and represent its history, and the resulting affect on culture and human relations.

Reviews

Originally banned by Telequebec, the TV network that financed it, Bad Girl “serves up its saucy insider’s look with a twist...It’s dedicated exclusively to woman-generated porn, showing how adult videos have slowly become more appealing to females, on both consumer and business levels." - FILM THREAT
