CBC Doc on Desire – looking for university-aged women to film

Hello! I work with a group of award-winning film makers. We are producing a documentary for CBC’s Doc Zone. It’s all about female desire. It explores emerging science and the psychological and social aspects of female desire. In this modern world of unprecedented sexual freedoms (birth control, instant STD tests… Tinder) – are women really free to “own” their desires? What is it like for 20 somethings in the modern sexual landscape? How about 70 somethings? In one segment of this film we explore online dating. We would like to sit down with a group of university aged women and interview them about their adventures – the joys and challenges. Do you use Tinder? Ok Cupid? Lulu? What do you think of dating apps? Can technology help empower single women? Or is it the opposite? What’s your experience? On the weekend of April 5th and 6th we would love to meet with a group of young women to ask questions like this on camera. Know anybody who may be interested? Feel free to call me for more information about our project. Thanks for your attention!
