Girl is Presence


Rental Format(s): Digital File

During the 2020 global pandemic, Lynne and her daughter Noa Street-Sachs collaborated with poet Anne Lesley Selcer. Their collaborative work is a form of reading and listening in response to disquieting words from Selcer's poem "Sun Cycle." The film's multitude of disparate objects sensorily reflect back a disharmonious and tense list of voiced nouns. The poem's original tone, contextualized by a book by George Bataille that deals with gender and power, takes on an expanded sense here. Against the uncertain and anxious pandemic atmosphere, inside domestic space, the "girl" arranges and rearranges a collection of small and mysterious things. Commissioned by Small Press Traffic.

Co-directed by Lynne Sachs and Anne Lesley Selcer
