The Wet Nurse & Her Diabolical Concerns
Preferring to excuse and distract herself rather than confronting her own demons, an Icelandic woman seeks escapism with a surreal aquatic twist when she sets her heart upon a series of waterbound sexual playmates. When her advances and are ultimately rejected, the scorned protagonist enacts a last brutal act of defiance.
Parfois Mon Corps Me Trahit (Sometimes, My Body Betrays Me)
Deals with the mercy we are placed upon due to our status as passengers in our own bodies, the mental and physical trials thrown in our direction and our largely pointless attempt to gain mastery over these struggles.
The Terminal Position
Uses the game of tic-tac-toe as an overly elaborate metaphor for the homogenisation of emotional and sexual relationships, it’s title coming from the game’s stalemate condition in which neither participant can be declared the winner.
