The Lady Garden

Tea and Strumpets

Event: No such thing, actually.

A film named Too Much Pussy? Well, that’s a Lady Garden Day Out, if ever I heard one.

Too Much Pussy is one of the films in this year’s OutTakes film festival. OutTakes is full of awesome things, but a dear friend specifically mentioned this one to me.

We see backstage development and live performances which are theatrical, erotic, absurd, burlesque, interactive, comic, and just plain hot and sexy.

But Too Much Pussy is also a great road movie. There is a pumped-up soundtrack and the overloaded van becomes another favourite character. The women shock and bemuse by-standers while they struggle and bond with each other, their audiences, their critics and their host venues.

The sex-positive feminist manifesto is to expand the idea of pleasure and refuse conformity. These articulate women know that sexism is a problem, but assert that it is about power and entitlement not sex.

Power and entitlement, not sex? Halle-fucking-lujah. (No pun intended.) Come on, a sex-positive  road movie, with burlesque?

A teaser (NSFW):

So, if Too Much Pussy sounds like a contradiction to you, get along on Monday night in Auckland, or the 7th and 11th of June in Wellington.

    A friend of mine is on the Outtakes committee, and she said THIS is the film to see. Bells on.

    I’m heading to see this on Monday evening – want me to let you know my thoughts afterwards?
