Roosevelt Island Women's Movie Group Showing Shocking And Hilarious Documentary On Female Viagra Drug Thursday Night January 23 - Orgasm Inc

From the Roosevelt Island Women's Movie Group:

On Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 7:00 pm the Roosevelt Island Women's Movie Group will show its next movie in the Party Room at 425 Main Street.

In this shocking and hilarious documentary, filmmaker Liz Canner takes a job editing videos for a drug trial for a pharmaceutical company. Her employer is developing what they hope will be the first Viagra drug for women that wins FDA approval to treat a new disease: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD).

Liz gains permission to film the company for her own documentary. Initially, she plans to create a movie about science and pleasure, but she soon begins to suspect that her employer, along with a cadre of other medical companies, might be trying to take advantage of women (and potentially endanger their health) in pursuit of billion dollar profits. This is a powerful look inside the medical industry and the marketing campaigns that are literally and figuratively reshaping our everyday lives around health, illness, desire — and that ultimate moment.

The name of the movie says it all: ORGASM, INC.

Suggested minimum donation is $7; our room rental and movie purchase costs are higher this time.

Please RSVP to and plan to bring healthy snacks or drinks for six guests.

Feel free to invite your women friends and neighbors.
