Ontario, Canada ,

Maria Finitzo's The Dilemma of Desire will be screened as part of the 2020 Guelph Film Festival. The festival will be online from November 6th, 2020 - November 14th, 2020 and is only available to viewers located in Ontario, Canada. 

One of the world’s first documentary film festivals, the Guelph Film Festival is dedicated to inspiring community engagement and appreciation of the arts by connecting people through stories of global reach and local relevance. The Guelph Film Festival is also dedicated to ensuring that all its films are financially and physically accessible. This festival screening, like many of their other screenings, are pay-what-you-can; keeping the festival affordable for all.  

Visit The Guelph Film Festival's website for tickets and more information. 

Festival passes available on a sliding scale from $35 - $75. Passes will allow full access to the entire film program, on-demand for the duration of the festival. 

ABOUT THE FILM

Entertaining, thrilling, and radical, The Dilemma of Desire explores the work of four women who are shattering myths and lies about female sexual desire, bodies, and - ultimately - power. The film is a powerful reminder that true equality will come only when we all arrive at a place of understanding and acknowledgment that women are sexual beings, entitled to live their lives fully within the expression of their desire. One of the film's participants, artist Rebecca Baruc, had her op-ed Why We All Need To Learn More About the Clitoris (and Female Orgasm) featured on the DailyBeast. 

Groundbreaking artist Sophia Wallace challenges long-held ideas of women with her “cliteracy” project, putting front and center the clitoris as fundamental to female orgasm.  Dr. Stacey Dutton, a neuroscientist who realized she had never seen a drawing of the clitoris until she discovered Wallace’s work, is now committed to studying its biology and pushing the publishing industry to correct the deliberate omissions of the clitoris in major anatomy textbooks. With 20 years of research, Dr. Lisa Diamond is dismantling outdated notions about women’s arousal. And industrial designer Ti Chang heads CRAVE, a company dedicated to designing and manufacturing elegant vibrators for women.

Providing the embodiment of this work are the personal stories of Umnia, Becca, Jasmine, Sunny, and Coriama - five young women discovering and owning their sexuality.

THE DILEMMA OF DESIRE is a powerful reminder that true equality will come only when we all arrive at a place of understanding and acknowledgment that women are sexual beings, entitled to live their lives fully within the expression of their desire.
