About the movie:
- FEMALEPLEASURE: Five cultures, Five women, One story
Barbara Miller’s feature documentary portrays five courageous, smart and self-determined women, breaking the silence imposed by their archaic-patriarch societies and religious communities. They all have experienced public defamation, threats and prosecutions, have been excommunicated by the society they grew up in and even received death threats by religious leaders and fanatics.
- FEMALEPLEASURE shows the universal mechanisms at work that determine the position of women until today, spanning cultures, religions and continents: from Japan and India and the Somali muslim diaspora to the Hasidic community in Brooklyn and the Catholic clergy in Europe.
