OutIn The Garden





16mm, 1991, 15 minutes, color, optical sound.

A film about the dynamic of assumptions as seen through the struggle of a gay man who has recently been told that he is HIV positive and who, in his own way, tries to come to terms with the news. The film eschews the usual talking head and focuses on the peculiar occasion for examining anew as brought on by disconnectedness. In the process,questions of identity, one's sense of reality, the day to day and social tyrannies end up implicating the viewer intimately as well. -VG.
