Nudism and naturism are ways of living for centuries. It would be odd if there are not any films covering nudism and nudist lifestyle. There are plenty of them: documentary, drama, comedy, sci-fi, adventure, crime, romance… short ones, long ones…you name it.
Some of them offer a great look into a nudist lifestyle, others…well they don´t.
Hopefully, there will be new films showing all the beauty of naturist & nudist lifestyle nowadays and helping people to understand this lifestyle.
Until then, I have made a first part of the “list of films covering nudism”.
Hope you will put them on your watching list and let me know which one do you like the most.
