DVD Naked States

Naked States by Arlene Donnelly



In a five month journey phtographing nudes in every staste, the critically aclaimed film, NAKED STATES, follows artist Spencer Tunick's quest to photograph nudes in public settings accross the country.

NAKED STATES is a visual American odeyssey that brings us closer to the truth about our bodies and our freedom as related to the sensitive issues of censorship and nudity.

Bear witness to some of America's most facinating subcultures, from the country's largest biker rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, to the Mojave Desert's eccentric Burningman Festival, to a huge outdoor Phish concert - here Turnick has no idea if he will get 10 people or 1,000 people to pose.

Along Turnick's journey hear the stories of the ordinary men and women who decide to pose nude in public, in NAKED STATES, art, politics, body image, and American culture come together in some very unexpected ways.
