MUSICAL PERFORMANCE BY
Picaresques (20min. 2011)
by Mariah Garnett
Picaresques seeks to investigate one person's tenuous relationship to gender through her projections onto past and future generations. This pursuit is complicated and even sidelined by a relationship she forms with one of her subjects, a 9 year-old from Santa Monica. Formally, the film moves between fiction, documentary, essay, home video and period piece and is shot on almost as many formats. Both the intangibility of the medium today and of identity are embedded into the structure of the film.
