This week Cheji joins me to talk about apologies of public figures and I was privileged to speak to Anna Brownfield, a multi-award winning feminist erotic filmmaker, about film, creativity and her love of craft!
Anna is a multi award winning feminist erotic filmmaker. Her work has screened at numerous festivals here in Australia and overseas including International Women’s Conference in Beijing and the WOW Film Festival in Sydney. She makes feminist porn and erotic films, she also makes films that capture historical narratives – such as The Bedroom, which follows the development of Australian sexual culture in the 50s. And on top of that, Anna makes documentaries about sex, the industry and crafts! A very accomplished lady!
We chatted about her inspiration as a filmmaker, the difference between erotic film and mainstream pornography. We also explored the importance of the female gaze and a feminist perspective in porn and the politics of pornography around the world.
She also gives us a hint of her current project! Well worth a listen – check out the episode below.
