SURREY – "The strange science of female pleasure" will be explored during a special event in Surrey next month.
Documentary filmmaker Liz Canner will be at Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Surrey campus Oct. 23 for a screening of her film, Orgasm, Inc., which examines drug companies' quest to find a cure for FSD (female sexual dysfunction).
The event will be hosted by Miss Representation Action Group, a KPUbased group of faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members.
The 2009 film kicks off a documentary series at KPU.
In a Sept. 6 event announcement, Canner said she's looking forward to presenting the acclaimed Orgasm, Inc. at KPU "because it seems like the perfect campus to screen the documentary. From what I have heard, the faculty and students have a strong interest in social justice and exploring issues that affect sexuality, which are two major themes running through the film."
The event runs from 4 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23, with a keynote address by Canner and postscreening Q&A. Admission is free, but attendees are asked to pre-register at www.kpu.ca/missrep.
