Age of Consent (15*)

Underwire Film Festival

Film still from Age of Consent

A selection of complex short films that examine sex and consent.

Underwire Festival presents a selection of challenging and impactful films that explore sex and consent.
Sex is complicated. And sex is simple. If “Yes” means “Yes” and “No means “No”, it is black and white. Except when it isn’t. These challenging and compelling films leave no hiding place for unspoken truths about consent, coercion and the games people play.
