A woman. Her body. A destructive, controlling voice. INA and JOY are naked and locked in a battle of elimination. INA must reverse the power to survive. Are they lovers or is JOY the “killer-within”? Shot in 35mm in b/w, this 14-minute film will take you below the surface of civilization into the volatile world of the feminine psyche and the white‐hot fight for survival. A simple sweater is the object of fury.
LIMINAL when first completed was 22 minutes long and I had to cut it down to 14 in order to comply with European festivals which put that limit on short films. So here is some of what was cut—great aerial shots of INA running away from JOY into the LA camouflage of anonymity. Our helicopter (Helinet Aviation) lifted off from Van Nuys airport and luckily we had a very atmospheric day for shooting.
