Yvonne Rainer
Experimental : 103' / Sexual Harassment, Bodies, Women, Feminism, Elder, Gender, Colorism, Politics

A genuinely subversive movie about menopause. Out of a subject that has been virtually invisible on film, Rainer has fashioned a witty, risky work about sexual identity and the unequal economies of race, gender, and class.
