Here beneath the moon - a struggle of bodies to be.
A mother's cut cuts a film in half.
(And film is life in exile.)
So there's always a question of - 'two'.
Her act - this cut - weaves these bodies' times and worlds - in scenes naked, brutal, erotic, poetic, comedic.
It ends - paradoxically (perhaps) - with a well-known creation myth, updated for the current state of the earth, as sign of human desire.
A film inflected by cinema time & theater space, Jewish myst & history, pornography and language, childhood barred and books on the floor.
