Partly Private

Monday Movies

Partly Private is a witty take on male circumcision and how we in the western world generally feel about it. Both comic and informative, the film questions how an ancient rite became normal medical practice in North America and other parts of the world.

Old Building, ground level, Auditorium


Lindenstraße 9–14, 10969 Berlin

The film goes beyond the questions of right or wrong and takes us into a contemporary universe of purported paganism, tribal and family heritage. From New York to Jerusalem to Italy to Turkey, we follow the filmmaker’s personal journey where she is forced to ask: to circumcise or not to circumcise.
