Married to the Eiffel Tower

Film Screening and Discussion

Married to the Eiffel Tower (2008) by Agnieszka Piotrowska

"Beautifully shot and fascinating - the film has reminded me why I like watching television." The Observer

Our conference about 'Love' on Saturday 3 December will be preceded by a film that shows adult love in one of its more unusual manifestations. Agnieszka Piotrowska's acclaimed documentary, which has been screened at numerous festivals and in more than 20 countries around the world, depicts the stories of women who love objects and not people. A film about tolerance and generosity and about the will to survive and seek love somewhere in the world, even when other people seem to offer nothing but hostility, Piotrowska's film deals with the complicated identities and intimate relationships of people who identify as "objectum sexuals." The film received a Special Prize at the Extraordinary Bodies Festival (2010).

The screening will be followed by a discussion between conference speaker David Morgan (Portman Clinic) and the film maker.
