Between

Claudia Schillinger

(Germany, 1989, 16 mm, 10:00)

Transferred to film from tape, and beautifully lit, shot and edited, ‘Between’ consists of a rapid sequence of moments of sexual activity. The recurring image is of a naked woman with a strapped-on dildo, which she caresses in mock masturbation. In her gyrations in front of the camera, the familiar image of the go-go dancer is utterly subverted and transformed by the presence of the false penis. In subsequent scenes she caresses, fucks and buggers a variety of partners whose gender is never firmly established. (Nicky Hamlyn)
