    TITS, a 7 minute documentary film about a woman's right to go topless in public, returned to Australia last week, screening at the Sydney Underground Film Festival.

    The new eye opening short documentary film won Best Film this summer at Hollywood's Sunset Film Festival. Not to be outdone by Hollywood, TITS won Best Director honors at Australia's Colortape International Film Festival.

    Since the film's premiere in April in London, TITS has screened at over 15 film festivals worldwide. The film is scheduled to screen at 7 film festivals over the next 2 months in Brooklyn, Minneapolis, Ontario, Budapest and Las Vegas, with more screenings added weekly to its successful festival run.

    Directed by Opal Dockery, TITS is a fascinating film about a woman's right to be topless in public, while bringing in the larger debates concerning women's rights and gender equality, the shocking, alternative short film is a story about Dockery's fight against what she perceives as discrimination against women in a very particular and conscientious way.

    The film is the directorial debut of 67 year old first-time filmmaker Opal Dockery.

    Dockery collaborates with her film producer son Jack Truman to share her thoughts about not being able to go topless in public, in conjunction with the annual Women's Equality Day topless protest in Venice Beach, California.

    TITS is an eye-opening film from the team behind the cult mockumentary hit film PHONE SEX GRANDMA.
