The blurb: Oui Jouie is a short 16mm narrative film exploring the relationship between a girl and her mother as she discovers her own body through sexuality. We follow the main character, Oriane, as she unlearns self-sexualization as a young woman and learns about her sexuality through self pleasure. This film addresses the miseducation around female self pleasure and the taboo of sex in the United States.
This film is unusual because it stars a mother and daughter playing themselves. Given that the film is about sex toys and first orgasms, it’s a bold move.
The film was “Best Student Film” Finalist at International Film Premiere at ARFF Paris in 2020.
