THE BODY IS NOT A THING explores a rite-of-passage that’s historically fallen somewhere between taboo and joke and asks the question on every woman’s mind: what awaits me in my post-reproductive years? The film follows a handful of women as they share their experiences of menopause, what happens to their bodies, their minds, their sense of who they are and how they’re perceived. 

Director | Monica Villavicencio & Stephanie Liu
