Veil is a psycho-sexual film about sex, religion, guilt, ecstasy, free-will, cinematic pornography and love.

About

​VEIL will feature two new works, Veil and Blackout; both made in 2015 and produced in part, as a result of a research residency in early 2014 at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha, Nebraska. 

Veil is a psycho-sexual film about sex, religion, guilt, ecstasy, free-will, cinematic pornography and love. We hear Dr. Patricia Lyons describe her relationship with masturbation, organized religion and the presence of the cinematic. We watch an abstract, evolving and fluid set of images pass before us: in scarlet red. Veil is a poetic, experimental expression/exploration of sexual identity clashing with religious doctrine.

Blackout is a film about time, and the loss of time as experienced by a recently sober, 22 year-old woman. The narrator of the film discusses her history of experiencing black outs through drinking; covering a five year time period that culminated in a three-day time-loss, her last bender. Visually, the work stutters through black moments, punctuated by originally recorded, heavily-edited abstract and representational images. The combination of materials creates a visual upheaval that echoes the content of the narrative.
