About the film:

Circumcision is the most common surgery in America, yet America is the only industrialized country in the world to routinely practice non-religious infant circumcision. Why does America continue to cut the genitals of it’s newborn baby males when the rest of the world does not?

American Circumcision explores both sides of the circumcision debate, including the growing Intactivist movement (intact + activist), which believes all human beings have a right to keep the body they were born with intact.

The film includes many local San Francisco elements, including the SF MGM bill controversy, the late activist Jonathon Conte, and several bay area interview subjects on both sides of the debate.

This is the first documentary of it’s scale to comprehensively explore this cutting edge issue, which involves sex, politics, and religion, all in the most personal way possible.

Runtime: 1 hr, 41 minutes.
