An episode of the CBC National news program looks at Campus Culture: Universities and the Issue of Sexual Misconduct to discuss sexual assault on campus and address changes that universities are making to change the incidence of “rape culture”.
Asking For It: The Ethics & Erotics of Sexual Consent challenges young people to envision a model of sexual interaction that is most erotic precisely when it is most thoughtful, empathetic and consensual.
Spitting Game uses student voices to explore the hookup culture on college campuses and to its role in reinforcing traditional gender roles and blurring the line between consent and coercion.
In The Line, a one-night stand far from home goes terribly wrong and a young woman is raped. As she struggles to make sense of what happened, she decides to make a film about the relationship between her own experience and the tangle of political, legal, and cultural questions that surround issues of sex and consent. Filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman seeks to move through the trauma of her experience and achieve a better understanding of the sometimes ambiguous line between consent and coercion. The result is a powerful documentary about the terrible personal reality of rape and sexual violence -- and the more complicated and ambivalent ways sexual assault is often framed and understood in the wider culture.
