"In the face of resurgent attacks on bodily autonomy around the world, Our Body is an urgent and political project." –Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter

"A remarkable documentary recalling the work of Frederick Wiseman in its patient, observational style." –Sight & Sound


French documentary titan Claire Simon observes the everyday operations in the gynecology ward of a public hospital in Paris. In the process, she questions what it means to live in a woman’s body, filming the diversity, singularity and beauty of patients in all stages of life. Through these many encounters, the specific fears, desires and struggles of these individuals become the health challenges we all face, even the filmmaker herself.
