To the question “What is a woman?” posed by a television station, a few women filmmakers have responded, including Agnès Varda. This cine-leaflet is a possible answer, and is called “Our Bodies, Our Sex.” On screen, a pregnant woman, naked, dancing, and laughing lustily, sparked complaints written to the TV station. The film is about women’s body—our body—our object-body, our taboo-body, our body with or without children. How can we live our body?
