Virgin

by Megan Hollingsworth


For this film, “virgin” is used in the original sense:

“Virgin was a label of strength and independence by being used to describe the goddesses who were immune to the temptations of Dionysus, Greek god of seduction and wine. Virginity was once a term of power.” &mdash Palo Alto Medical Foundation

To VIRGIN
is to CLAIM the
GREATEST
HUMAN
TRAITS.

Virgin documents healing ceremonies in redwood forests of California, using poetry and song to convey a message of compassion for the perpetrator and victim in all of us. Sexual energy is creative energy — ecstasy — in its pure form. Early childhood sexual abuse and deforestation are violations of this energy that wound individuals and compromise whole communities.
