Rent “F” For Free – Below
A definitive look at the infamous expletive, “F” explores how this oft-used word, still widely seen as obscene, somehow permeates every aspect of our culture – from Hollywood, to the schoolyard, to the Senate floor in Washington D.C., where it is at the very center of the ongoing debate on Free Speech. “F” examines the word’s impact through various interviews, film and television clips, and original animation by Oscar-nominee Bill Plympton. Scholars and linguists examine its long and colorful history; comedians, actors, and writers who have charted and popularized the word defend their Constitutional right to use it. Even people who do “it” for a living are interviewed, all in an effort to discover what it is about this one syllable that both unites and polarizes people.
