The Last Taboo

with 2 comments

Last night I had the great pleasure of seeing Alexander Freeman’s new film, The Last Taboo.  I am so glad to have found out about it just a few nights before the screening, so glad to find this vehicle for change.

There are two things that we Americans just cannot discuss: death and sex.

I spend a lot of time talking about death with people who have to. But it is so easy amid the housing and transportation concerns to dismiss the basic human need for–right to!–love. And touch. And pleasure.

I will be writing more on this in the future, and will soon share some projects in the works around this topic. In the meanwhile, check out Alex’s profile (featuring this film and previous work) here.
