Some Kind of Loving
It begins with Dorothy’s red slippers. They allowed her to live out a fantasy in which she was the center of attention, strongly desired by forces both good and evil. She got to live in a surreal world, lovingly attended to by 3 middle-aged men. She conquered evil and returned home safely.
I remember Madonna in the early 1980’s. I was young (pre-teen). Her music made me feel sexy before I knew what sexy was, and it made me hopeful before I realized that the world is a very difficult place. As an adult woman, I often emote as I did when I was 11. This tape is a homage to that young girl, how perfectly beautiful and perfectly mean life can be.
“Pornfilm” is a short film about love and sex, about the narratives of each. A woman reads a brief story about an actor’s real life marriages, failure and later ‘wedded bliss.’ The reading is stiff, awkward and stumbling. The images are of two actors having sex; with an investigatory band ping ponging back and forth, an incessant watching and exposing.
