Les Hômmes (2009 edition) [NSFW]

An updated edition of of my film Les Hômmes . This finalized festival version of the film was lit only by available light, in this case a severe thunderstorm in rural Georgia. The short piece is a mediation on the memories of lust, sex and longing.

Leo Bersani stated (and I'm paraphrasing here so forgive me) that homosexuals spend more time remembering a sexual encounter, memorializing it and rhapsodizing it as opposed to heterosexuals who spend their time anticipating the sexual act (which explains the lingerie industry if you ask me).

Les hômmes represents the tactile memory of a sexual encounter, the electrical storm of passionate physical attraction, the absorption of scent, taste, touch, of hearing , seeing and feeling with the entire body, the body of another.
