TV premiere: Cut Uncut

We are happy to announce the TV premiere of "Cut Uncut" by Insa Onken on 23.07.2022, at 21:58h on ARTE.

Removal of the foreskin is the most common operation performed on male children worldwide - for religious, cultural or medical reasons. In Africa, the WHO used boy circumcision in the fight against AIDS. But more and more doctors say that the harm is greater than the medical benefits and that surgery is performed far too often.

Despite increasing criticism, the opinion that circumcision brings many benefits is still widespread. The film explores the question of when circumcision actually makes medical sense and critically questions the ethics of this millennia-old practice.
