An anthology of shorts that explore multiple embodiments of queer sensualities.
Juicy Fruit, TRT 5 min. 30 sec.
Juicy Fruit is an abstract exploration of sexual power dynamics. Fruit serves as the object electrified; a sensual catalyst. Often shot in the first person point of view, the piece is suggestive of the viewer's voyeuristic complicity.
Aria, TRT 15 min.
Loosely based on Henry Purcell's Dido’s Lament, Aria is an operatic exploration of longing and loss set in present day New York. Melodrama seeps into intimate moments of contemplation, sadness, quiet desperation. Theatricality melds with the everyday as the act of waiting takes on an intense yet ambiguous emotional weight.
Joe's Corner, TRT 15 min.
Androgynous females depict "Little Joe" (Joe Dallesandro), a male hustler character from Warhol's and Morrissey's films Flesh, Trash, and Heat. They are filmed in the moment of waiting for the next "John" exposing mundane yet poignant moments of anxiety, boredom, and vulnerability. Desire becomes seedy, awkward, and tense as the dynamics of sexual currency unfold.
Tango, TRT 28 min.
Tango is a collection of vignettes that explore the crossroads between myth and desire. The characters’ fantasies are acted out in unexpected ways – with innocence, cruelty, narcissism, and solitude. Cultural and historical gender structures are exposed and redefined.
