Please note, this screening has been CANCELLED. Filmmakers Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus follow three women as they navigate the uncharted waters of the sexuality in the cyber age in the documentary Sexy Baby. There's 12-year-old Winnifred, 22-year-old Laura and 32-year old Nichole, each with a different outlook and agenda. Winnifred rightly calls her generation ''the pioneers'' of life online. Living in a world where phone sex and porn magazines having been replaced by sexting and live video feeds, Winnifred is never more than just a couple of clicks away from explicit sexual content. That's something of which both she and her parents are painfully aware. Laura is spending thousands of dollars on plastic surgery to make her vagina more closely resemble those of the adult-film actresses her porn-obsessed boyfriend admires. And Nichole, a former porn star, is teaching college coeds and suburban homemakers how to pole dance. Ironically, Nichole just wants to settle down and have a few kids, to become one of those homemakers. Bauer and Gradus wisely allow the women to tell their own stories, without commentary from talking heads and experts.
