The Cervix Pass

  • France
Audio Tracks 

When your feet are in the stirrups, your legs are spread wide, and your vulva is out in the open, it’s not easy to let your voice be heard. It’s also not easy to imagine what the doctor sitting in front of you is actually seeing. The Cervix Pass sheds a bright light on genitalia during the course of a gynecological exam. The camera becomes a mirror, while a relationship of care unfolds between midwife, patient, and film crew.
