A film on the cinematic gaze. 'The All-Seeing Eye' explores 'the fluidity and limitations of the gendered gaze in narrative and experimental film'. It explores how the cinematic gaze can be reconfigured as bisexual, as open to the other, as evidenced by films such as Meshes of the Afternoon and Requiem for a Dream. The terms femininity and masculinity and their relationship to Mary Anne Doane's theory of the masquerading female in cinema is an explicit influence on the narrative input.
The All-Seeing Eye explores images and statements that suggest female and male connotations, and also images which blur the gendered boundaries of the gaze. It is a film that wants the cinematic gaze to be understood as bi-sexual, as a neutral gaze that remains open to fluid gender positionings.
