Three short films by Peter Tammer. Music by Bill McDonaldMY BELLE
16mm. Colour. 20 mins
An impressionistic portrait of a friend, Michelle, a performer preparing for her act... the private world and public world superimposed upon each other to present a feeling for the person caught between the two worlds.
16mm. Colour. 17 mins
Influenced by the 'title' of the painting by Marcel Duchamp, "Nude Descending Staircase", but not informed by the actual painting. Four separate movements of figures descending: different staircases, different environments, bodies cascading, a cataract of flesh... metamorphosing... visually regenerating... forever descending.
QUEEN OF THE NIGHT
35mm. Colour. 20 mins.
A poem of the night. The predatory male, perhaps a reincarnation of Orpheus, seeks the elusive female archetype which beguiles, mystifies, allures, and finally destroys him. Two figures in a nightscape of coruscating light and colour. A poem of yearning.
