THE F-WORD is a provocative look at the power of the word 'feminism' in the US. Why does it mean so many different things to different people? Pithy interviews with women and men from diverse backgrounds are rhythmically intercut with computer-animated quotes from the likes of Barbara Smith to Pat Robertson, all set to an upbeat rap accompaniment.
Designed to open up attitudes, THE F-WORD proves that feminism is still something worth talking about, hotly debated, widely misconstrued, and undeniably a fact of life! Created to inspire dialogue and debate, this irreverent, visually engaging documentary gets to the heart of feminism by dismantling the word and its many meanings. THE F-WORD is an ideal discussion starter on issues related to gender, sex roles and stereotypes, and the history of the feminist movement.
"A dynamic and engaging piece and an important step toward rekindling discussions of feminism as we move toward the 21st century." - Angela Davis.
Directed by Erin Gallagher and Marcia Jarmel.
