LOVEFISH / PROJECT STATEMENT
Directed by Mollie McKinley, Starring Richard Saudek and Ariel Sims
2010, color 16mm film transferred to DVD, 07:40 min. with an original score by Michael Lowe
“This strange and haunting film is inspired by dreams and their Jungian symbols, as well as by Diana, the virgin huntress of Greco-Roman mythology. McKinley deftly tugs on our ancestral strings with a set of surreal imagery that hovers somewhere between art performance and ancient ritual. By showing us an interpretation of who we were, McKinley offers an insight into what we’ve become. A multimedia artist based in New York City and the Hudson Valley, McKinley has received critical acclaim nationally and abroad for her films, photography, and installations.”
