Czechoslovak CompetitionFilmEnglish friendly
Politics, history, and the female orgasm. What do these have in common? The first in the series of eight episodes of the popular science documentary about the most intimate parts of people’s lives against the backdrop of 1950s socialist Czechoslovakia.
Authentic testimonies comment on the neglected and altogether ignored chapters of biology and history textbooks. The Orgasm Chronicle documentary is based on the book Sexual Liberation, Socialist Style by Kateřina Lišková, who is also active in the stand-up comedy duo Duo docentky. Numerous archive materials and animations related to sex life accompany the documentary series.
