Naked Gardens - A Documentary at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival
The filmmakers, who shot the film in the nude themselves, depict the
quotidian life of the residents. Men and women of different ages and races are
seen cleaning a motorcycle, playing tennis or basketball, and - gasp!
- even cooking and using power tools.

A synopsis of Q&A in no particular order.
"What was it like to shoot the film in the nude?"
"What can you explain about the nature of the culture?"
"Why are we all so fascinated with nudity?"
"The idea of coming together and connecting while naked is something
that we, who are at our computers or in the world all day long, lose."
"What is very profound is that many people at the resort had extreme
trauma because they had genitals that were considered imperfect, and by
exposing themselves in a healthy, non-sexual manner, they were finding
acceptance from people in this community and healing from pain sadness and shame."
"Coming together for something deeper than just being naked
together to heal together and empower each other and care for each other.
It does provide a sense of community that is very strong."
Interesting read. I wonder when the documentary will be available.
It is debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival, which is going on now. Its first showing was June 10. So once the film festival is over they may decide to release it to indie theaters or sell rights to Netflix, etc.
