Privilege

Loading...
Middle-age documentary filmmaker Yvonne Washington is becoming a "woman of a certain age", so she invites long-time friend Jenny to assist in filming a candid and open dialogue on menopause. This becomes a commentary on the implicit interrelation between vanity and subjugation, as women already relegated to secondary status in society face further trivialization and exclusion, reduced to a caricatured, iconic pop culture image: the crone. The film is also a scathing exposition of ageism, sexism, economic elitism, and racism--the isms that artificially define and characterize empowerment in contemporary society--and the marginalization, disenfranchisement, and social segregation that pervade everyday existence, informing the myth of privilege.
