There is perhaps no greater demonstration of irony than the experience of Savannah Magruder’s protagonist in her new film “Debbie Does Dilators”, which will be featured at the Brooklyn Film Festival next month.
After Sara graduates from film school, she answers a Craigslist ad seeking a production assistant. Suddenly, she finds herself on a porn set and as such can’t escape surgically enhanced body parts, simulated sexual gymnastics, and climactic reactions that have no basis in reality. So here’s where the irony comes in: Sara is incapable of experiencing intercourse herself because she has a condition known as vaginismus, an involuntary tightening of the vaginal muscles. The film explores Sara’s navigation of her professional surroundings as well as her personal issues and her attempts to reconcile both.
We are thrilled for Savannah, a Maze patient, for promoting awareness about vaginismus, a condition that affects countless women (and one that is very treatable)! Learn more about Savannah’s story and then get tickets!
“Debbie Does Dilators” will be screened in Brooklyn on June 1 and June 6: click here for further details.
