SEXTOY STORIES : DOCUMENTARY - 52'40" - Part of our tribute to Delphine Palatsi aka DJ Sextoy. The tribute offers two documentaries radically angled differently but so complementary. SEXTOY STORIES is one of them.
Who is DJ Sextoy? She was one of the first French women that had been accepted and respected in the techno and house music Dijing world witch was male dominated in the 90s.
Thirhteen years after her death, no trace of her work remain as testimony although somesay that the girl foreshadowed artists like Lady Gaga, also the movement FEMEN.
Thanks to this tribute, we want to show who was really this tiny five-feet tall woman but also try to understand her sources of motivations to became the very "sexy and trashy bad girl" named DJ SEXTOY. We think our work takes place as a duty towards cultural diversity.
Regarding SEXTOY STORIES we inspired "Hollywood Stories" whose style has became cult. For the story, Delphine was a big fan of this TV show.
A long period of preparation allowed us to bring together innumerable photographic archives, many original videos, even some TV french shows from the 90s devoted to the young DJ Sextoy. To this precious material we added many of our personnal footages filmed between 1993 and 2002.
Thanks to long interviews generously gathered, artists but also friends, collaborators and journalists offer us slices of life they have shared with Delphine/Sextoy, each one with their own sensitivity and emotion, but always with joyful tenderness.
Step by step we also discover Delphine, practicing body modifications such as surgery and tattooing to finally shaped her ideal self : DJ Sextoy.
SEXTOY STORIES reveals the whole complexity of a character, whitch is only suggested by coded clues in the other part of the tribute : THE SEXTOY PROJECT (most experimental cinematographic treatment and
most intimate relashionship with Delphine aka DJ Sextoy).
The movie soundtrack is essentially made of Sextoy's electronic music production (in collaboration with DJ Decay, DJ El Doctor, Jennifer Cardini and Chloé DJ).
