Peabody Award-winning director Maria Finitzo’s latest documentary is an entertaining, thrilling, and radical exploration of the work of a group of women who are shattering myths and lies about female sexual desire, bodies and —ultimately—power. Groundbreaking artist Sophia Wallace challenges long-held ideas of women with her “cliteracy” project, Dr. Stacey Dutton, a neuroscientist is pushing the publishing industry to correct the deliberate omissions of the clitoris in major anatomy textbooks, and Dr. Lisa Diamond is dismantling outdated notions about women’s arousal. Inspired by the ground- breaking essay “Uses of the Erotic” by feminist Audre Lorde, THE DILEMMA OF DESIRE is a powerful reminder that true equality will come only when we all arrive at a place of understanding and acknowledgement that women are sexual beings, entitled to live their lives fully within the expression of their desire.
