Film Forum Presents~ OUR BODY ~

August 3 - 10, 2023 - 12:20pm, 3:00pm, & 7:00pm

Cinema is no stranger to exposing women’s bodies. But rarely do we experience their corporeal reality, through sickness and health, aging and change. With access to the examination rooms of a gynecology clinic in Paris, Claire Simon trains her compassionate eye and ear to doctor-patient interactions, both intimate and epic: a young girl candidly divulges an unwanted pregnancy; a trans woman reveals the physiological and emotional challenges of transition; a couple shares their long struggle with infertility; a doctor holds a patient’s hand while breaking the news of terminal illness.
