THE STRONG SEX

Documentary

“If almost every woman around me has already experienced sexual harassment or violence, what does this say about my male friends and myself?” After #metoo, director Jonas Rothlaender confronts various men with anonymous statements by other men about their sexual experiences and the associated gender roles. As a result, the protagonists begin to reflect on their own sexuality and to talk about their experiences. THE STRONG SEX is an examination of male sexuality, its power structures and stereotypes of masculinity in present time.
