Sexual politics in the nineties is a very complicated subject. Different points of view about gender, sexuality, and sexual orientation all lead to an extremely broad and varied portrayal on the big screen. This panel, moderated by Janet Sternburg, author, film curator/writer, and former senior program advisor in media for the Rockefeller Foundation, and made up of some of the brightest and most provocative young filmmakers, will conduct a wide-ranging discussion of today's views about sexual eroticism, homophobia, misogyny, and sexual identity as well as analyze the demands and influences of the marketplace. What is appropriate or acceptable anymore when it comes to sex on a screen? How have concepts of political correctness or ideology affected its portrayal? These questions and many more will be discussed in this very "sexy" panel. Panelists will be announced on the catalogue Updates page.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications.

For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
