207 minutes 2022 6.2

Nearly 50 years after Laura Mulvey's groundbreaking creation of the term "The Male Gaze," critically acclaimed director Nina Menkes provides an updated analysis of cinematography throughout history. With clips from blockbuster films, techniques that reflect the power structures in society, where women are subordinate to men, are exemplified.

Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power is an immediate milestone in feminist film theory, and an eye-opening critique of a stagnant industry.
