Shulie is a deeply obsessive and strangely engrossing shot by shot, line by line (location by location where possible) recreation of a documentary shot in 1967 by four Chicago based university male film students. The original film is one of a series of portrait documentaries profiling the "now" generation of the 60s revolution. The subject is (the still living) Shulasmith Firestone who in 1970, three years after the making of the original documentary, wrote the best selling radical feminist text, The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution which among other things argued for a cybernetic reproductive chamber which would eliminate the need for pregnancy, and therefore end the "tyranny of the biological family".
