I'm Lina Esco and I'm a filmmaker living in Los Angeles. Last year I directed my first film, FREE THE NIPPLE based on true events about a topless group of women who bravely fought the censorship laws in New York City. The film is almost done. Now we need your help to push it over the finish line and complete the movie, not to mention we're facing an NC-17 Rating and some very challenging censorship laws!

Today, in the USA it is ILLEGAL for a woman to be topless in 37 states. In New York City, in 1992 it became LEGAL to be topless in public, but the NYPD continued to arrest women. I believe these laws do not reflect the dream upon which the United States was founded. So we took to the streets with our fearless cast, a film crew and armies of topless women to end this insane war on women's boobs! 

The first week we started shooting, our film turned into a "real life" revolution of topless women, activists and graffiti artists invading the streets of NYC fighting for our First Amendment rights. We shot the whole film, but still need $250,000 to pay for post production costs ranging from music for the soundtrack to P & A (prints and advertising) for our marketing campaign. I believe together with your help we can complete the movie, and in a perfect world -- decriminalize the "female nipple" in all 50 states.   

 "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality!"                                                                                                                 - John Lennon 

Filmmaker Lina Esco With Actress Lola Kirke On The Set Of FREE THE NIPPLE!

By supporting, FREE THE NIPPLE you become part of the real life revolution. Together we can free our country from these backward censorship laws that force police to arrest women for breastfeeding their child in public or for being topless on a beach.  The goal of this campaign is to get the movie out to the world the way it was intended to be seen, and help inspire new laws to de-criminalize the "female nipple" in America. 

 

Without a film distributor today, marketing a film is almost impossible, and FREE THE NIPPLE is facing an NC-17 rating, which is considered "pornography."  This hurts our ability to be seen in theaters. Independent films are dying in Hollywood because studios no longer want to market them especially with an NC-17 rating. Now we need your help to spread the word so we can bypass the MPAA and go straight to the people without being censored!

FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM & ABOUT.ME  REMOVED OUR PROFILES in the middle of our campaign! You can show real life BEHEADINGS on FACEBOOK, but a nipple is too offensive for community standards ?

Censorship attacks so many areas of our lives. The mission of this film is to help free us from corporations and law makers who are banning our art, social media, TV and films. President Eisenhower once said, "The most dangerous weapons of any Tyrant are not weapons and guns, but censorship."

Only two left of the last SIGNED EDITIONS of Spencer Tunick's, European Installations, in which the battle of nature versus culture is played out against various backdrops. Tunick has traveled the globe to create theses still images of multiple nude figures in public settings. Organizing groups from a handful of participants to tens of thousands, all volunteers, is often logistically daunting; the images transcend ordinary categories and meld sculpture and performance in a new genre.

This is Tunick's first book and it encompass thirteen years of work primarily commissioned by museums and contemporary art organizations in Europe.
