Nice Girls Don't Do It

Canada, 1990 (MIFF 1991, Documentary)

Director: Kathy Daymond

Art advocacy film about female ejaculation. Black and white to distinguish itself from pornography, multi-layered sound to distinguish itself from the patriarchal narrative, explicit and confronting, yet playful and ironic. Nice Girls Don't Do It is either a post Irigarayian textuality of difference or it is taking the piss out of the audience. It is a 'Teach Yourself film, workshops have not been scheduled. Decide for yourself. (J.H)
