As Good As Touching Image

As Good As Touching, 2004, 16mm color film

A medley of melodrama, inspired by the great German director Fassbinder and his Spanish equivalent
Almodovar, this film is a satire and social critique of what it is to be a young and self-involved American
in the midst of a world in turmoil. The film is filled with John Cassavetes-esque acting to an extreme and
explores a variety of touchy subjects through an operatic narrative of relationships gone awry.

Alex and Cheri, 2003, 16mm color film

Love is a four-letter word illustrated through a series of dialog-driven vignettes. Inspired by all things
lovely, including the French writers Stendal and Colette. The film takes a look at the vulgarity of love
from a domestic ultra-feminine milieu vis-à-vis a stylization like Fassbinder's Petra Von Kant.

Three Brief Phrases, 2002, 16mm black and white film

Originally based off a poem this film explores ideas of “relationship” in three phases. The relation-
ships are spatial, temporal, and romantic. Words and images are juxtaposed as in a poem to lead the
viewer to new and contrasting ideas. Sometime understanding how things are related is clearer
when we understand how things are not.
