Women Make Film Episode 7: Bodies and Sex
Bodies in cinema can be enticing, athletic or brutalised. Jane Fonda narrates this chapter about how some of the great directors – including Agnès Varda, Andrea Arnold, Marva Nabili, Pirjo Honkasalo, Márta Mészáros and Wanda Jakubowska – have filmed bodies.
From bodies to sex – one of the most controversial aspects of film. This chapter reveals a variety of ways of showing sex on screen, from directors Diane Kurys, Lucile Hadžihalilović, Jamie Babbit, Safi Faye, Athina Rachel Tsangari, Alison de Vere, Carine Adler, Donna Deitch, Miranda July, Lucía Puenzo, Maren Ade, Chantal Akerman and others.
