Cause and consequence of multiple social struggles and evolutions as well as medical progress, the sexual revolution redefined our societies. From New-York to Paris, San Francisco and Berlin, discover previously unseen public and private archives with analysis by the most eminent experts.
From the advent of readily available contraception to feminist and LGBT struggles, from the change of mentalities and relaxation of censorship to the introduction of sexual education in schools: the sexual revolution permeated many of the social evolutions observed from the 1950s to the 2000s.
While these themes are usually treated separately, the unveiling of exclusive archives will enable us to shed a new light on this social dynamic. The director also interviews sociologists, historians and philosophers in Europe and the United States to give us their perspective on this broad topic.
