Behind the camera during Hollywood’s sex scenes in an eye-opening and engaging film-about-film that sheds light on the rotten sides of the film world with wit and bite. A must-see for any serious cineast.
Intimacy coordinators. Nudity contracts. Sex hair parades. Body doubles. Covert racism. More films and series are being made than ever before, and ‘Body Parts’ reminds us why it is important to know how they are made. Nudity and sex scenes can follow actors throughout their lives and create norms in the real world. Hollywood stars like Jane Fonda, Rose McGowan and Rossanna Arquette share their experiences from the set to an eye-opening collage of clips from their work. It is about an ingrained, structural misogyny that cannot just be washed away once the scene is in the can, and about giving your all to your role even if you risk losing ownership of your own body in the process.
