F Rated Film
Saturday 13th May 2023 - Thursday 18th May 2023

Dir. Nina Menkes, US, 2022, 108 mins. With. Rhiannon Aarons, Kathleen Antonia, Rosanna Arquette.

Screening as part of the Cine Sisters SW film festival. Nina Menkes’ compelling new documentary is a mesmerising visual journey through cinema’s sexist bloodstream, investigating the use of gendered techniques in filmmaking and how these impact the representation of women in society.

A deep dive into cinema history, using more than 175 film clips from Hollywood favourites and cult classics, from 1896 through to the present, as well as interviews with filmmakers and scholars, Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power reveals a sinister framework of misogyny and paternalism that, from early cinema to the present day, infiltrates some of our best loved films.
