Bridgett M. Davis’s film Naked Acts, newly restored and playing at BAM June 14 through June 20!

Set within the demanding and revealing milieu of a low-budget film shoot, Naked Acts tells the story of Cicely, an actress—and the daughter of a former Blaxploitation film star—who recently lost 57 pounds and just landed her first role in an art film. When she learns that the role requires a nude scene, Cicely is faced with a dilemma: How can she keep her clothes on and keep the part? The sole feature by writer-director Bridgett M. Davis, Naked Acts offers a portrait of a young woman who quickly discovers that emotional nakedness is far more revealing than taking her clothes off could ever be. LEARN MORE + GET TICKETS!
