Feminist sex educator Shere Hite created controversy with her 1976 bestseller ''The Hite Report,'' an expansive survey of women revealing intimate details about their sexual pleasure. From filmmaker Nicole Newnham (CRIP CAMP) and narrated by Dakota Johnson (FIFTY SHADES OF GREY), the documentary admiringly dives into Hite's groundbreaking ideas and how they shaped the way we talk about gender, sexuality, and bodily autonomy today. THE DISAPPEARANCE OF SHERE HITE shines a light on a forgotten feminist figure who was ahead of her time, silenced by Americans unwilling to confront the honesty of women’s sexual agency and desire. An IFC Films release.
