In this short talk created as part of’s 2021 Sundance Film Festival Beyond Film programming, artist and entrepreneur Twanna A. Hines asks us to look at movies in a new way: through the lens of touch and intimacy. She spotlights how Covid-19 has affected our need for touch, intimacy and sexual health through the lens of film and virtual reality and the way that it is and is not reflected on screen. Twanna challenges you to look at the films you are watching in new ways and shares advice about how to be intimate in our new normal.  Presented by the rePRO Film Festival.
