Powerful look into the college hook-up culture of Spring Break
10 February 2018 | by meriahmoffatSee all my reviews

A well-planned and moving documentary. "Liberated" interviewed a host of college students within the microcosm of Spring Break and balanced their real-life opinions with the testimonies of a variety of researchers, advocates, scientists, and experts to explain how media and skewed gender identities have created a harmful hyper-sexualized society. As a young person and current college student, I am grateful for voices like this that tell me that I am more than my sexuality, that sex is more than a commodity, and that men and women are inherently of great worth and should be treated with dignity for their unique, beautiful humanity.

Although written and directed by Benjamin Nolot, the founder of Exodus Cry, a Christian non-profit organization, there are no religious references in this movie. Instead, it is a look at the harmful social effects of our hypersexualized generation.

Although powerful and moving, it lacked a wider discussion of what caused such a harmful culture and a stronger call-to-action at the end. Nonetheless, this film did raise a lot of important questions and clearly portrayed the hookup culture without condemning it.
