FRANCE | 85 minutes | 2019

A former screenwriter for François Ozon (Under the Sand, 8 Women), Marina de Van (In My Skin) asserts her position as the most provocative woman’s voice in French cinema today. In the age of swiping right and one-night stands, the 40-something filmmaker takes a candid look at sex, love and the naked flesh, questioning how we relate to others. Venting her spleen — not without humour — on our relationship to sexuality, she uses her own body as a stand-in for an image of womanhood all too often censored by society. The female body as a polemic in a taboo-pushing film equally teasing and disturbing.
NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE

"... one of the most vital and original French filmmakers of our time does not disappoint. De Van has succeeded in telling us something fundamental that demands an urgent rethinking of what nudity on film means" AWFJ
« Il y a dès les premiers instants de Ma nudité ne sert à rien un sentiment d’authenticité totale... » Le Polyester
