Synopsis

Drawing the Line is a documentary film about the art exhibition of the same name, created by Kiss & Tell, a group of lesbian artists (Persimmon Blackbridge, Lizard Jones, Susan Stewart). The art show displayed pictures of lesbian sexual practices, ranging from the mild making-out to the more radical depictions of fisting. The artists, then, asked the crowd of visitors to write a message next to the photo that made them the most uncomfortable. Challenging the limit between eroticism and pornography, the rhetoric of the film soon turns towards a more expand discussion about the challenges faced by female artists who work with eroticism and pornography, both in society and within the art community.
