Straight from SXSW, DocNYC, HotDocs, AFI Docs—and many a woman’s deepest desire—this award-winning film introduces a long overdue concept: Cliteracy. Even as we see mounting evidence that women want what men want, antiquated sexual scripts remain in place, and women are caught in a catch-22, a double blind, a quandary, a dilemma of desire. Ask yourself this: How different would our world look if women’s libidos were taken as seriously as men’s? Patriarchy-reinforced traditions of shame crumble and female sexual power overflows in this liberating examination of the biological, historical, and political facts surrounding women’s desire, while also taking a close look at the violent price paid by women due to systemic disempowerment. Experts—including a scientist, a psychologist, an artist, and an innovative industrial designer—pave the way for an authentic celebration of the clitoris and female power in this redemptive, absorbing, and inspiring film.
