Movie Info

In a Los Angeles film studio, the cameras roll on an X-rated film, and in the director's chair sits a woman. In New York and San Francisco, companies created by women market hard-core videos to the female consumer. In France, women filmmakers such as Catherine Breillat produce critically acclaimed films shown worldwide but which some call "Pornographic." One of the most popular porn websites in that country is the creation of a woman. In Denmark, a woman directs the new "Pussy Power" porn subsidiary of Lars von Trier's Zentropa film company. These women are claiming the right to pornography - made by women for women. They reject the censorship called for by feminists in the Seventies and demand the freedom to explore their sexual desires in sexually explicit films. Are they simply businesswomen who want their share of one of the most lucrative film and video markets? Are they avant-garde feminists? Advocates of new sexual relationships? Featuring selected film clips and interviews with feminist authors, filmmakers, anthropologists, s exologists, porn producers and activists including Linda Williams, Luce Irigary, Benoite Groult, Catherine Breillat, Nina Hartley, Carol Queen, Annie Sprinkle, Virginie Despentes, Bernard Arcand, and Jane Hamilton, among others - Bad Girl gets down and dirty with women who, from Hollywood to Paris, from Cannes to Las Vegas, from Montreal to San Francisco, are giving pornography a new name. -- (C) Cinema Guild
