This critically acclaimed film by Claire Simon explores the issue of women and trans peoples’ health in a gynaecological clinic in Paris. With an empathetic eye, the renowned documentarian assembles a deeply invested study that questions what it means to live in a woman’s body, filming the diversity, singularity and beauty of patients in all stages of life. We see cancer screenings and fertility appointments, a teenager dealing with an unwanted pregnancy, a trans woman considering the beginnings of menopause. Through these encounters and many more, the specific fears, desires and struggles of these individuals become the health challenges we all face, even those of the filmmaker herself.
