Laundromat, a woman is sitting and looking at spinning laundry
drum while she eats a cotton candy. Her hands become sticky
and she becomes dirty, a violent encounter with a stranger
resurfaces. Her action of eating in the present merges with the
past memory; the Laundromat becomes both an interior and
exterior space filled with cotton candy. The machines repetitive
noise fills the Laundromat and dictates the movement inside it.
The sweetness becomes too sweet, sticky and soiling. And she
is spinning.

Female is an animated documentary on the difficulties of
childbirth and motherhood. Anonymously, women share their
most intimate secrets of the journey towards childbirth and
beyond. This film is an insight on the reality of their everyday
lives as well as an exploration of the maternal condition.
Sometimes surprising, funny and sad, these touching
testimonies take us to the world of women that share an
exceptional privilege, the one of being called Mom.

How, in 2011, can there still exist myths around female
sexuality? How is it the mere mention of this erotic region
provokes such argument, doubt, and salacious laughter?
How can this simple erogenous zone, mysteriously identified
as the "G spot", be known to all yet... only very few know its
location, its physiology or the story of its discovery? A joyful
and surprising film, with colorful characters, exploring science,
sexual liberation, ideological conflicts, and of course... pleasure.

The Feminist Art Movement was an activist movement, providing
a model of cultural and political change. Art protests were waged
against discrimination and racial exclusion as well as violence
against women. Over time, the tenacity and courage of these
pioneering women artists resulted in what many historians now
feel is the most significant art movement of the 20th century.

A suitcase full of dreams, a journey through of five women's
desires. The documentary was filmed in Spain, and interviewed
Latino women sex workers in Spain. They talked about their
reasons choosing this occupation. Some are mothers who did
this for their family, and others are single women making the
decision themselves, however, most of them desire to escape
from the current situation.
