There are some fabulous female-directed documentaries out there, including a pair that may be of special interest to pin up fans. Both look at female sexuality in the 21st century and both are helmed by the directing duo of Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus.

Sexy Baby looks at what “sexy” means in the digital age. Three women, a twelve-year-old, a 22-year-old, and a former porn star, help to explore the world.

You may know Hot Girls Wanted from Netflix. But before it became a digital hit, it was a documentary that screened at Sundance. The film features five amateur porn stars who are striving to make it in an often-brutal business..

What I do is an outlet for something that’s already there. Supply and demand.

Both films offer a complex and nuanced exploration of notions of female empowerment in a world of 24/7 media. And both are great additions to any watch list for the Directed by Woman global viewing party.
