8 November: »Rule 34« at »ifs-Begegnung« Gender & Diversity

On 8 November, Rule 34 by Júlia Murat will be the last screening of our joint programme series “ifs-Begegnung” Gender & Diversity this year:

During the day, 23-year-old Black law student Simone rigorously discusses the role of women in Brazilian society in the lecture hall. She works at a center for victims of domestic violence and researches the causes of racism and femicide. At night, she performs in front of her webcam in a sex chat room and is incited to even more extreme practices. Her private life contrasts with her intellectual ambitions: a free-spirited mix of self-defense classes and safe space sexual experimentation with her university friends/lovers, along with video calls with a confidante and BDSM practitioner who steers her down this precarious path. As she seeks more radical forms of sexual gratification, the lines between body empowerment and self-harm, social responsibility and personal pleasure blur.
