Body Parts documentary movie

Filmmakers Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and Helen Hood Scheer investigate the past in order to push toward a more equitable future for women in front of and behind the camera in their BODY PARTS documentary. The director and producer discuss with CineMovie the growing movement to empower actresses and female filmmakers in changing both the narrative and employing intimacy coordinators on set to ensure women have a say in what they want to do with their bodies.


Watch BODY PARTS in select theaters and VOD on February 3, 2023. BODY PARTS features interviews with actors and creators who are advocating for real change, including Jane Fonda, Joey Soloway, Angela Robinson, Karyn Kusama, Rose McGowan, Rosanna Arquette, Alexandra Billings, Stacy Rukeyser, Emily Meade, David Simon, and Tanya Saracho.

MORE ABOUT THE MOVIE

BODY PARTS explores the evolution of desire and “sex” on-screen from a woman’s perspective. Demystifying the often invisible processes in creating intimacy for film and television, the documentary sheds light on the most closely-guarded secrets of an industry now at a crossroads.  

Deftly illustrated with movie clips stretching back to Eadweard Muybridge’s motion studies, BODY PARTS is part film-history lesson on the dominance of the heterosexual male gaze and part clarion call for employing intimacy coordinators across the entertainment field. It neither shies away from uncomfortable conversations nor ignores imagemakers trying to set a higher, more inclusive bar on set and on screen.
