Description: Join us for the second part of the documentary "The Principles of Pleasure," to learn more about how patriarchy and capitalism have oppressed, racialized, gendered, and classed pleasure of the body, mind, and spirit. With a documentary that explores the relationship between social phenomena and scientific research, we will learn about not only how to cherish and celebrate our bodies, but also how to use our access to pleasure as a weapon against the oppressive social, political, economic systems in which we find ourselves today. Screening (50 mins)+ Discussion (30 mins). A offering from the fall session of https://instagram.com/freeskoolsantacruz
