Discussion with author Natalia Fiedorczuk-Cieślak: What do women want? after the screening of “#Female Pleasure” by Barbara Miller
In Polish only
A movie about women who quit obeying the patriarchy… but what do women want in our times? Who are they? These issues are frequently debated in our society, but answers are – paradoxically – provided predominantly by males. Is this the reason behind the continued acceptance of rape culture, subordinate role of women in the hierarchies of the biggest religions, and the perception of the vagina as obscene in public spaces as opposed to the perfect neutrality of the penis?
Natalia Fiedorczuk-Cieślak – jury member at this year’s MDAG, writer, composer, creative trainer, educator. Her groundbreaking first book, ”Jak pokochać centra handlowe” (“How to Fall in Love with Malls”), received the Paszport Polityki literary award. The second, “Ulga” (“Relief”), shocked many readers. She contributes to a number of magazines, belongs to the screenwriting team at the Munk Studio of the Polish Filmmakers Association, composes film scores, writes plays, and recently became a film producer.
