1. Vital Signs


    from Marta Renzi Added 337 0 1

    From the vaults, as perhaps can be seen by the ugly color, courtesy video technology circa 1992, the year Vital Signs won a BESSIE. Wonderful music by Van Morrison makes it worth watching until the end. A heartbreaking cast, including Gail Litfin who died of complications of diabetes about a year later, and Chris Dohse who was then recently diagnosed HIV positive. Also Jeff Breland, Barbara Bush, Chisa Hidaka, Juliana Luecking and Paige Martin. http://martarenzi.blogspot.com

    • Nobody's Darling


      from Marta Renzi Added 359 1 1

      choreographed and edited by Marta Renzi. Danced by Tina Vasquez and Amos Wolff. NOBODY'S DARLING is a duet danced by a pair of independent spirits, whose unsentimental intimacy is both tough and tender. Their no-nonsense relationship to the camera, the graphic treatment of the image and their amplified footfalls, all heighten the underlying sexual tension. Shot at Dixon Place in February 2010.
