MY FEMME DIVINE
Still from Purse

Five hot new shorts about identities and relationships. Part personal memoir and part documentary, Karen Everett's My Femme Divine (1999) mines her own explosive love affair and draws from poetry, photography, discussion groups, Mormon teachings and Jungian psychology to explore the butch/femme mystique. Program also includes Purse (Kelly Dolak and Liss Platt, 1999), Pump (Abigail Severance, 1999) and two experimental shorts by Phoenix video artist, Sharri Weinberg.
