One man’s art, one small word and the place we all come from are explored in this provocative documentary…

The film


Cunts The Movie (working title) is currently in post-production.

The film is being made to play on broadcast television, screen at film festivals and be available on DVD through internet sales. While aimed at a broad audience, the documentary suits arts and social interest broadcast programs and appeal to social justice, feminist and queer focused festival circuits.

We are seeking both production funding and broadcaster interest. Broadcasters, please contact the filmmakers for a progress report.

The inspiration

woman works

Australian artist Greg Taylor encounters controversy and intense interest when he stages his exhibition of porcelain sculptures of 140 women’s genitals.

Cunts The Movie charts the journey of the sculptural exhibition ‘Cunts and Other Conversations’, documenting both the public’s responses and some of the subjects’ reasons and responses to being sculpted. Cunts the Movie explores the effects of the censorship of women’s genitals and how the word ‘cunt’ – once just a factual word to refer to a woman’s pubic area – became the foulest swear word in the English language.

As the artist Greg Taylor asks, “How did we come to be afraid of the place we all come from?”

Half of us have one, but its image is censored and its names are often offensive, infantile or clinical. When a sculptural exhibition of vulvas titled ‘CUNTS’ provokes controversy, the film makers go on a candid exploration of contemporary attitudes to women’s genitalia. Watch the trailer
