Director Nina Menkes compels the casual moviegoer and cinephile alike to confront how the visual language of cinema is used to disempower women at the most fundamental level.

Using more than 175 film clips from canonical Hollywood favourites and cult classics as well as interviews with filmmakers and scholars, Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power reveals a sinister framework of misogyny and paternalism that, from early cinema to the present day, infiltrates some of our favourite movies.

Featuring interviews with leading actors, directors and film theorists, the film is a mesmerising visual journey through cinema’s sexist bloodstream that will forever change the way you see films.
