A HOMO, A PRETTY BOY & A FACIAL TIC
Dir: Richard Squires
Super-8 transfer to video, 2 mins, colour, stereo, 1995
A homo. A pretty boy. And a facial tic. A three-way situation deteriorates and a suggestive chant is gradually disrupted by a flow of involuntary squeaks, grunts and expletives. Disequilibrium brings the formation of some new vision.
“A tour de force of schizoid imagery and breakdown”
[Ian White, REPROJECTION programme]
