The phallocracy of our societies permeates and molds our lives. We are born naked in a world that determines sex and gender roles. We share values determined by a dichotomous society that esteems and emphasizes those gender differences and that assumes that we are all heterosexual. As forms of artistic expression and communication, world literature and cinema have been fighting against censorship to strip away the mask of hypocrisy and to proclaim the rights of the socially marginalized, not only for the purpose of realizing democratic, social and political order, but also so that we may begin to have socio-sexual democracy. Screening of a movie will be followed by a discussion and a wine and cheese reception.

This event is free and open to the public.
