DOCUMENTARY - 75'- Part of our tribute to Delphine Palatsi aka DJ Sextoy. The tribute offers two documentaries radically angled differently but so complementary. THE SEXTOY PROJECT 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.
The film is made of footages we filmed during eight years of work between 1993 and 2001. At that time, the fascinating young woman inspired us to shoot her: Delphine in her intimacy as well as DJ SEXTOY during her DJ sets.
We also worked with video-art technics using her own body as constantly evolving texture.
But our work was stopped by her violent death on 2002, February 3rd.
Thirteen years later, we offer our footage as a tribute to Delphine aka DJ Sextoy. We remain as sincere and objective as possible. Without any comment nor voice over, the film allows to stay in total intimacy with its subject. A very early interview filmed in 1993, at the very beginning of her carrier structures the whole film with the intention to let Delphine seduce the camera without interfering.
From 1993 to 2001, the girl guides us herself through her musical work and above all her physical metamorphosis.
Modestly she delivers different sides of her personality: youth behaviour but complex and passionate identity, always balanced between force and fragility.
Her 25 years old girl determination quickly appears and step by step she creates DJ Sextoy “the bad girl”, an ultra glamorous public persona that matches her very expectations about herself.
Finally, we wanted to respect her unfinished dreams giving her the opportunity to create an auto portrait : "The Sextoy audiovisual archive".
And look how she burst the screen !
