Dilemma of Desire

 

Documentary Feature

 
 

The Dilemma of Desire is a feature length vérité film about female sexual desire and the powerful gender politics that revolve around not acknowledging female desire. We know that the female body is the primary metaphor for sexuality – saturating advertising and mainstream erotic imagery. However, female sexual desire – what women actually want – is left out of the conversation. To make matters worse, cultural, religious and political forces, in fact punish women for expressing their sexual desire. The bottom line however, is this: there can be no equality without equality of pleasure.
