Circumcision is one of the most controversial topics around. It’s a decision that most American parents-to-be will consider. It’s also the topic of ‘American Circumcision,’ a comprehensive documentary in the works aiming to shed light on our country’s most common surgical act: foreskin disappearing.

While many are aware there’s a controversy brewing over the removal of the male foreskin during infancy, “American Circumcision” gives voice to both conventional American perspectives and those calling for change, providing in-depth coverage of both sides of this issue.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the de facto organization leading public opinion on circumcision, published its latest policy statement on circumcision in 2012, claiming the benefits of the surgery outweigh the risks, but not enough to recommend routine infant circumcision, leaving the decision squarely in the laps of nervous parents.

“American Circumcision” goes deep into the controversial AAP policy, interviewing key figures on both sides.

“I’ve been very fortunate to interview one of the architects of the current AAP policy statement, and also a member of the last task-force on male infant circumcision,” says filmmaker Brendon Marotta. “What these individuals have to say is both surprising and powerful.”

Marotta, a freelance film editor, is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, having earned his earning his B.F.A. in film editing and sound. “American Circumcision” marks his directorial debut.

The circumcision rate for American male newborns has declined in recent years to around 50% today. This is due in part to the intactivist (intact + activist) movement, made up of individuals and organizations calling for doctors to abandon what the intactivists see as an unethical procedure. “American Circumcision” gives an inside view of this diverse movement.

“I think viewers will be surprised by the caliber of people who are active in the movement,” says filmmaker Brendon Marotta. “There are some very serious, very thoughtful individuals who are looking at this issue from medical, legal, ethical and religious viewpoints.”

All filming is completed for “American Circumcision.” The last step towards widespread release is the hours and hours of editing that Marotta and his team have left to do. To this end, Marotta is “kickstarting” this last step using the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter, which allows anyone to pledge donations in exchange for perks. As of this writing, “American Circumcision” has already reached over 15% of its fundraising goal, and it’s not even been 12 hours since the launch.

Perks of donating include digital downloads or DVDs of the completed documentary, a T-shirt, and, for the handsome sum of $5,000 or more, the title of associate producer.
