Body Talk - Documentary Feature

  • Downtown Independent 251 South Main Street Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

Is this my body? Who am I? As the carrier of a spirit and will, how does a woman’s body struggle, jostle, collide, and merge with all things other than themselves. The body seems to follow the mind as merely its shell or tool. However the body does possess memory. A tired body, an injured body, a sick body, a fat body, a visible or invisible body, a body nourishing life, or a decaying and aging body... Have you looked at your own body carefully? Everything about you is buried amongst the hair, deep in your skin, down in your viscera and bowels, or within those millions of nerves. No matter whether you have forgotten about them, your body still remembers. In this film we interviewed thirty women, through the clips of their interspersed interviews the film implicitly discusses the “birth, aging, and illnesses” of the body during the course of life. Through their talks, we are led into the diverse female body experience. The film experience thus is akin to secretive women’s talk emitting a feminine and flowing tone.
