Body Issues – Marjorie Conrad (Seattle, Washington)

As Jane struggles to establish a connection with her body, she gradually loses herself in a labyrinth of inner confusion. In “Body Issues,” the exclusive use of bodycam footage lends a visceral quality to the experimental narrative, allowing an intimate connection with Jane as she guides us with her voice. The lens becomes an extension of her physical experience, capturing her movement and amplifying the significance of her body as a vessel for emotion, sensation, and growth. The absence of visible human faces creates an ambiguous space where Jane doubts her reality as much as we question her intentions. By shifting the focus to the inner and outer landscapes unfolding on screen, the film invites us to reflect, empathize, and introspect as Jane embarks on the strangest vacation in human history. 2023; 72 min.
