Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power (18)

Dir: Nena Menkes USA 2023 1hr 47mins Documentary

This daring and incisive documentary is about the politics of cinematic shot design, and how this meta-level of filmmaking affects and intersects with the twin epidemics of sexual abuse/assault and employment discrimination against women, especially in the film industry. Containing over 175 clips from A-list movies from 1896 to the present, as well as interviews with important female professionals Brainwashed shows how the visual grammar of cinema contributes to conditions that create discriminatory hiring practices, pay inequality, and an environment of sexual harassment in the film industry and beyond. Explores challenging material: 18 cert.

“Illustrates in no uncertain terms the motion picture code and detriment of the “male gaze”. No secret that women have been objectified in film across the board in ways you won’t be able to ignore once you see this” What She Said
