We follow fictional character Detective Lacey on her travels to investigate aspects of female sexuality including women buying sex and Rent-A-Dreads. Lacey returns at the beginning of the film and reflects retrospectively on her journey.
A Woman's Deeper Journey Into Sex follows Private Detective Lacey's quest to determine whether women need emotional connection for good sex. As Lacey travels from Australia to North America, the UK and Jamaica, she investigates women paying for sex, rent-a-dreads, women's uptake of porn and romance dependency. She also dips into her Dictionary intermittently on matters such as women's social history. With memorable characters including ex-Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, porn star Jesse Jane, Miss Cougar International and a range of ordinary women, this fast-paced film, written in verse, blends documentary, drama, animation and graphics to peep into the world of female sexuality.Written by
When the Director and DP first visited Heidi Fleiss they decided to film her in her disused barn, away from her 30 or so loudly squawking Makaws, but on the day of the interview the Director changed her mind because she thought Heidi would be more relaxed surrounded by her exotic birds. Heidi does most of the interview with one of her Makaws - Reggie - on her shoulder and feeds him her coconut juice from time to time. See more »
Indie filmmaking is tough - often brutal. No budget to pull you out of a hole - actors or, in the case of a doco, interviewees who don't show - or get bolshie and miffed. No 2nd AD bringing you cups of tea and having to second guess 300 things a day, cos you're crew is miniscule. Sal McKenzie did a great job on this one. She's great to watch and is quietly persuasive, penetrating and gets the answers she's sleuthing for. I reckon this is a goodie.
