During his lifetime, the Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was already a subject of controversy: some people (mostly men) saw him as a visionary and driver of the sexual revolution; others said he had a misguided understanding of freedom and women’s rights. In her documentary series, Dean lets the victims of Hefner’s success have their say. Did Playboy offer sexual liberation? For men at most. Helga-Mari Steininger
