I’m thrilled to have been invited to present my animated shorts at London Short Film Festival as part of an incredibly inspiring programme of animation by women.
DRAWN BY DESIRE: WOMEN'S ANIMATION ON SEX
Sex is a ubiquitous subject in art, but often falls into tired tropes. Looking to the medium of short form animation, Nobody Ordered Wolves asks how we can create new ways of looking at sex in hopes of finding new ways of thinking about sex, beyond the coy and often pornographic.
Animation creates a unique safe space for women animators to visualise desire, reshape sexuality and say what is otherwise unsayable about bodies brought together, showing sex away from the male gaze. The films in this programme range from the nakedly educational, via the confessional, to the absurd and delightful. Standby for a seminar on the clitoris, that moment when a cartoon teddy realises ‘I like girls’ and a pansexual plasticine softboi - in short, sex and all it can mean to us. 77’
