The first trailer for "Free The Nipple" - without a nipple

Free the Nipple fights for equal rights and sees itself as more than a feminist hashtag. Now comes a movie about the movement in theaters. We show the first trailer HERE. Without a nipple.

At the end of 2013, the hashtag #FreeTheNipple first appeared on Instagram. Advocates of the strike post posted topless pictures in the fight for equal rights for women and men.

Celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus, Lena Dunham, Rihanna, Liv Tyler or Scout Willis also fired the action, helping to make the hashtag a fast-moving movement. #FreeTheNipple became a viral self-immolator, which also found non-digital mention. In addition to sexual equality and the right for all women to breastfeed in public, #FreeTheNipple also calls for a more elaborate system of censorship. Lina Esco takes the critical dialogue to the next level. The initiator, actress and director will release the movie Free The Nipple later this year. The first trailer can already be seen.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lina Esco says: "I've always questioned women's not being equal to men, and that fact bothers me a lot, it's not about pulling blank, it's about equality." #FreeTheNipple stands for an innovation of the status quo. For example, she argues that in 35 US states, women are not allowed to show their shirts, men are not. Likewise, the law prohibits women from satisfying their babies in public.

The Free The Nipple campaign picked up speed in 2012 when Lina Esco met Miley Cyrus shooting a music video. Esco told the singer of her plan to make a film about women who opposed the indiscriminate censorship. In December 2013, Miley Cyrus posted a photo of a fake nipple and linked to @freethenipple. There followed a storm of solidarity that continues today. At the end of the year, Lina Esco's cinematic supplement to the campaign will be released - for which Miley Cyrus also contributed the appropriate theme song. Her film "Free The Nipple" (working title: "Girlrillaz") revolves around a group of women who are passionately fighting for a new perception of femininity and the decriminalization of the naked body. Based on real events, the film revolves around a handful of women activists protesting in New York at the top without ruling abuses.

On December 12, 2014, Lina Esco's film "Free The Nipple" will be premiered in the US as well as online.
