About the Film

******Trigger Warning*******

 

Lady Parts is a documentary exploring the impact of the War on Women in a city like Memphis, Tennessee. In Memphis, crimes against women have landed the city on lists such as Forbes’ Top Ten Worst Cities for Women in the United States. This makes it the perfect place to consider how trigger words such as rape, incest, and abortion combine to re-traumatize women (and men) who have experienced these painful things and live with the condition of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Lady Parts is examining how people from all ethnic, economic, and religious backgrounds reacted to the use of trigger words during the 2008 and 2012 election cycles.

Lady Parts is currently filming and is aiming for an early 2014 release.

Written, Directed, and Produced by Jennifer Allen and Sara B. Free.
