THURSDAY, OCT 21, 5:00 PM, NW FILM FORUM &
VIRTUAL (OCT 14–24)
Alexander Liu; 2020; USA; 76 min.
Growing up, filmmaker Alexander Liu couldn’t quite understand his or anyone else’s sexuality. His parents never talked about the subject, and the limited information he received in school focused on disease, pregnancy, and abstinence, rather than the real pleasures that he discovered later on. In A SEXPLANATION, Liu goes on a fun-filled educational journey to expose the failures of the sex education he received, receiving more comprehensive instruction as a thirtysomething adult, no matter how awkward it gets. And it does get wonderfully awkward! Through honest conversations with scientists, educators, and even his parents, Liu finally discovers the naked truths and hard facts needed to strip away the shame for a healthier, more rewarding sex life.
