Five films that present very different transitional stages of life. Blind Man’s Bluff: a couple wants different things, but with verve. Can it come to any good? “You’re looking at me,” says Marie: and we watch how she copes with the loss of a friend, how she wants to capture irreplaceable moments, somehow. His things are still in the flat, as well as her best friend Julie, who stages a video diary, tales of loss in grainy 16mm images: Kijken Naar Marie. The word ‘separation’ can also be found in the title The Separation Loop: that which is divided shall be brought together, but the home textiles remain homeless. Vagina Sky demonstrates the endless possibilities of the female sex organ – in a nutshell, as quick as a wink.
In Blood Below The Skin, Jennifer Reeder portrays three girls who experience life-changing events in the week leading up to their prom night in the most traditional of all passages – from girl to woman.
