[Politics of Intimacy: Kathy 2]

This is raw footage shot for Julie Gustafson's documentary, "The Politics of Intimacy." In this seminal feminist video, ten women address the camera and seemingly each other in a wide-ranging exploration of such previously taboo subjects as women’s sexuality, power, and fears about intimacy. This interview is with Kathy Mahr. Mahr is a wife and mother of two young children. In this interview, she discusses what she describes as a very satisfying sex life with her husband Richard. Her two children, an infant boy and a 3-year-old girl, make appearances on camera.Originally shot in 1/2" B & W video.
