57 Ways is a tongue-in-cheek film about a girl who is obsessed with her vaginal odour. She tries different common methods of getting rid of her odour – some of them being garlic and yogurt, but to no avail. In the end she decides to take drastic measures. 57 Ways is reminiscent of early German Expressionism and employs Magical Realist tropes to examine the problematics of women’s health within western medicinal practices.
