Desire Pie. 1976. USA. Directed by Lisa Crafts. 5 min.
Desire Pie was created when sexual liberation and the power of the women’s movement gave women permission to express their sexuality in art. Crafts responds to heterosexual sex films predominantly made by men, for men, by presenting explicit sex with humor, fantasy, and warmth.
