Home / Lina Lyte Plioplyte’s PERIODICAL Limited Engagement
PERIODICAL tells the unexpected story of the human body by exploring the marvel and mystery of the menstrual cycle, from the first period to the last. But this is not your middle school sex-ed class. In the film, soccer star Megan Rapinoe reveals how the Women’s U.S. Soccer team tracks their cycles, scientists share discoveries on the power and possibilities of stem cells found in period blood, young activists flip the bill on period taxes one state at a time, and celebrities like Gloria Steinem, Naomi Watts, and Anna Konkle share their personal experiences and advocate for their own rights. Lina Lyte Plioplyte’s innovative and passionate documentary uncovers shocking truths, challenges taboos, and celebrates the end of centuries of societal-enforced stigma.
