DescriptionFierce Detail seeks the erotic in our everyday lives. The fierce detail of the face, language and objects are sites of emotion, passion, spirituality and humour. Shot on handheld Super 8, and cut quickly and fluidly, the film allows for the causality of gazing at a women's face in extreme close-up, as she reflects and interacts with the audience/camera. We enter her world to hear a dislocated and poetic story of desire.
