Description Reviews / Awards

Written and performed by Dominique Dibbell (of the Five Lesbian Brothers), Lady is gender confusion at its best! The exact identity of Lady's red-headed protagonist is hard to pin down. Is she a woman playing a man playing a woman, or, more specifically, a lesbian playing a gay man playing a heterosexual woman? The juxtaposition of various cinematic styles in the film, from quasi-'70s variety to home movies to a more distanced black and white, adds to the sense of a character continually redefining herself. This purposeful ambiguity--who is the lad in the red wig?--invites the audience to question the blurred parameters of sexuality, desire and what it means to be a woman.
