The Imagemaker


A Vegas showgirl wanders into the desert while performing her routine. The harsh natural conditions force her to acknowledge her own physical needs, and she transforms from a beautiful object into a living being with thoughts, desires, and a point of view. Yet this is a dangerous freedom, as the viewer turns voyeur and ultimately predator. 'The Imagemaker' engages the relationship of the viewer to the viewed with the artist playing both director and performer. Shot entirely alone in the desert, the film explores the Sisyphean effort of living female by presenting the hazards of both self-consciousness and self-liberation.
