In great controversy, Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani poses nude in Jean-Baptiste Mondino’s short black and white film “Corps et Âmes” (Bodies and Souls), on body image and liberation from the physical realm of flesh towards the transient, spiritual body, free from societal constructs of beauty.
I roughly translated the spoken-word, French-natives please critique…
Regardez-moi — Look at me
A cet instant, nu — In this moment, naked
Libre de corps et d’esprit — Free of the body and the spirit
N’ayant subi de pression que de moi-même — Not having submit to my pressures
Je me livre corps et âme — I deliver to myself the body and heart
Vierge encore je succombe — I am a virgin (innocent, naive) still, I succumb
Je rentre dans le désordre — I return to the disorder
Mon ADN éparpillé à jamais — My DNA scattered forever
J’entre dans la danse — I dance away from myself
Évadé de moi-même — I escaped as the prisoner of myself
Mon art sera de jouer — My sole art will be to play
De vos rêves je serais la chaire — In your dreams, I will be the stage
Je ferais vibrer les mots subtils — I will make vibrate the subtle words
Comme des fruits sur ma langue — Like the fruit of my language
Je vous donne ma peau — I will give you my skin
Ensanglanté, encensé, comblé — Bloody, maddened, to the brim
De larmes et de rires — Of tears and laughter
Je couperais votre souffle — I would cease your breath
De cris, de lumière — From all shouts, all light
De foule je veux me souler — In a crowd, I want to get drunk
Votre impossible, votre inavouable —Drunk from the impossible, the unavoidable
Revêtirons mes traits — That will veil my features
My Daughter The Teenage Nudist
Mollie and Alex are part of a growing group of teens and twentysomethings embracing the world of public nudity - a contemporary phenomenon that’s been driven by social networking sites such as Facebook as well as niche websites like Naked Vegan Cooking.
They are on a quest to normalise nudity, question the media’s obsession with the body beautiful, and encourage other young people to liberate themselves by simply going naked - in the streets, in cafes or at art shows.
The new nudists are keen to take the nudist lifestyle beyond the old fashioned naturist clubs. So why is this pastime increasing in popularity and what do the parents think about their child revealing all in the most public of places?
First aired on UK TV channel, Channel 4, on 12 January 2012.
The Sex Files: Baring it All on the Discovery Channel
According to Wikipedia - The Sex Files is a television program appearing on Discovery Channel Canada and shown on CTVglobemedia around midnight hours, because of content. It talks about several issues of sexuality, from genetics, reproduction, sexual orientation, puberty, etc. It does contain nudity, which is why it is shown in the midnight hours, but the nudity is done from a scientific point-of-view showing exactly what the topic is visually, good for people who want information on sexuality and the biology behind it. In Europe the show was called Sex Sense and featured a male narrator. The number of episodes and their titles were the same but the episodes themselves were slightly different as the more explicit scenes were replaced. It aired on Discovery Channel Europe.
The clip above talks about naturism.
