Free the Nipple


1h 24m 2014

Brief Synopsis

Inspired by true events, the film follows a group of young women who take to the streets of New York City topless, to protest the archaic censorship laws in the United States. Activists Liv and With set out to start a movement and change the system through publicity stunts and graffiti installations while armed with First Amendment lawyers. The film explores the contradictions in our media-dominated society, where acts of violence and killing are glorified, while images of a woman's body are censored by the FCC and the MPAA. What is more obscene: Violence or a Nipple?
