A schoolgirl forced to wear a burka begins to discover her sexuality. A 55-year-old widow develops a desire for a young swimming instructor. And a sexually liberated woman plans to escape her arranged marriage and elope with her Muslim lover. In their search for personal emancipation, the characters embody the pursuit of sexual pleasure as a central issue for global feminist political struggles. We'll be presenting the feature film along with TIGHTLY WOUND, an animation following the director's personal experience with vaginismus, a pelvic floor condition causing physical pain and inability to have intercourse. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349155 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
