Shifting Positions

1999 (3-part series, video, 28 mins.)

An autographic trilogy about queerness, and becoming old.

This is a semi-autographical/fictional trilogy which explores becoming queer later in life, my father's dementia and our mid and end-of-life crises.  The selling of our family home of forty years prompted the making of the first section entitled “Last Home” which investigates the ways memories and spirits inhabit a house.  In the remaining two sections, “Napping” and “Behavior of Fascination”, the relationship between father and daughter is looked at through "home movies" and documented intimate moments of private life where the camera is exchanged between father and daughter.
