A Samurai In My Bathroom and Other Hand-Made Pleasures

Queer reworkings and reclaimings of classic film, dyke dancing and erotic imaginings mix in this adventurous collection of lo-fi delights. A poke in the eye for convention.

Sing Little Bird (Germany 9 mins)
Using only herself, her flat and some ingenious props, Lilli Hartman creates a samurai movie of epic proportions.

Umbrella (Germany 6 mins)
A super8 sci-fi short with echoes of Vivienne Dick and some really scary umbrellas.

We’ve always known that lesbians are very, very dangerous. Now science can show us why.
