Some Kind of Loving is the third video compilation tape in Joanie 4 Jackie's "Co-Star" series. [Note: Joanie 4 Jackie was formerly Big Miss Moviola.] Over the last four years New York-based experimental movie curator Astria Suparak has arranged some of the most daring multimedia events in
the city, presenting them in spaces such as PS1 Contemporary Art Center and Anthology Film Archives. But what if you don't live in New York? Joanie 4 Jackie knows that the best lady-made film and video art belongs not only in a gallery, but also in the bedrooms of girls all over America. So we asked Miss Suparak to put together a tape just for Joanie 4 Jackie. Some Kind of Loving explores sexuality from its formulation in childhood, through adolescence, and into adulthood. Using low-grade video, super-8 and 16mm film, optical printing, stop-motion animation and manipulated found-footage these five art stars decode desire and the cultural codes for lust via pornography, voyeurism, memories and fantasy.
Some Kind of Loving comes with a printed booklet containing the secret thoughts and motivations of the artists.
