Intercourse: The Life and Work of Andrea Dworkin

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Andrea Dworkin was one of the most influential feminists of the last quarter of the twentieth century, characterizing pornography as an industry of damaging objectification and abuse, prostitution as a system of exploitation, and intercourse as coercive and degrading to women. Despite her challenging and uncompromising views, which made her a figure of intense controversy, she was nevertheless greatly respected for the quality of her writing and thought, the power of her oratory, and her great commitment to the feminist cause.
'Intercourse' offers a multi-layered visual, narrative approach to her life and thought, with multiple actors taking her role and expressive and non-naturalistic re-enactments of pivotal moments.
