Claire SIMON France 2023 168 min M18 (Some Disturbing Scenes)

A sensitive and profound meditation on the female body, as seen through varied experiences at a French gynaecology ward.

At a public Parisian hospital, women’s bodies—young and old, cisgender and trans—move through the transient realm of its gynaecology wing. With its intimate yet unflinching gaze, the film stitches together scenes of patients and medical staff in the midst of birth and death, absorbing every detail and finding profound drama in the experiences it bears witness to. But a devastating revelation midway forces the filmmaker to turn the camera on herself, weaving her own story into the ever-expanding tapestry.

A vital study of women in fraught spaces of care, Our Body takes us into the communal experience of owning a female body and invites a deeper understanding of ourselves and our shared humanity.
