We are currently in production on a film called At Your Cervix. (Check out our website at www.atyourcervixmovie.com). We are seeking stories of women or female-bodied trans folks about gynecologists. The film takes a critical look at gynecology and the provision of breast and pelvic exams. Some gynecologists are absolutely amazing and have a way of making us feel comfortable, open and respected. Some gynecologists do the opposite and we are always amazed at the stories we hear of humiliation, disrespect and pain inflicted by many gynecologists. Our film aims to create a vision of what it can be like when the experience is a positive one and to end practices that leave patients feeling like they don't want to go back to a gynecologist because they have been so mortified or traumatized.
We are looking for people who are willing to tell their stories on camera, both positive and negative. We will be shooting these stories on Jan 26 or Feb 2 in New York City. If you or someone you know has a story to share, please contact us asap so we can discuss it with you and possibly set up an interview time.
Please respond to me, Amy Jo Goddard at firstname.lastname@example.org and to our production manager Stephanie Dawson at SD@eclectionmedia.com.
