> DESCRIPTION

The recent auction of the world’s foremost collection of erotic art draws documentarian Peter Woditsch into a historically discreet community of enthusiasts and scholars of sexual expression. Over the course of a European road trip that leads both filmmaker and viewer from mysterious storerooms beneath the British Museum to the Vatican’s hidden trove of Roman erotica, Secret Museums lays bare the hidden history of Europe’s evolving views and taboos about sexuality. Highlights include Pompeii’s raunchy frescoes and the Marquis de Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom scrawled on a roll of prison toilet paper.
