Let's get wet, cause every film needs a good shower scene. Wet is an experimental film made in response to male directed films of trans non-binary people and woman that use nudity in scenes of contemplation without reason and more for the directors voyeuristic opinion of these narratives. When the male lens asks for women and non-binary people to enter a male diminated space of watching eyes, it places non-males in dangerous and avoidable spaces. This film was inspired by every man-made voyeuristic sexualizing shower scene.
Wet was a collaboration through and through. Made between myself and a crew of all women and trans people who helped contribute their own ideas in one way or another. I was inspired by the beautify of my friends and instructed them to wear their most confident outfit and they got wet. Sabrina Benaim offered to write and perform what she would describe as "erotic femme loving poetry" for the soundtrack. The film was made by the Muses Film Collective - myself, Alex Tse, and Alessandra Sconza- which is founded on offering support and opportunities to trans non-binary and woman in film to help them create work in comfortable and visible spaces. Wet is proof that you can still offer time on set to teach people new skills while still accomplishing beautiful images. Wet itself is a joke on men who call women/femmes as wet when aroused. Wet is a response film and it’s about the meaning and process of gendered filmmaking.
