Documentary maker Amy Oden seeking support for new movie

by Intern Courtnay

Documentary filmmaker Amy Oden is seeking support for her new project, Exotic, which she’s hoping to start shooting next year. The film will follow women traveling from the mainland US to Guam to work as exotic dancers. Oden hopes to present a look at a kind of sex work not covered by other media outlets. The money she raises on Kickstarter will help fund her trip to Guam, as well as basics like tape stock and hard drives. Her goal is to raise $5000 by December 6th, and she can’t do it without the public’s help. Oden’s most recent project is 2011’s From the Back of the Room, a documentary about women in punk rock. The film explores femininity, sexuality, and motherhood, all through the lens of the punk scene. She’s currently working on a film entitled Opting Out, which explores the link between economy and masculinity. It includes advice on being a more involved father, collective business owning and autonomous living. For more information on her upcoming projects, and for ways to help, visit kickstarter.
