Frankly, Shirley

Margaret Moores

1987, 10:23 minutes, colour, English


The story of a one night stand that went on and on. The affair is wistfully recounted by one of the lovers. She recalls the last time they made love and chronicles their amorous adventures. They never made love in bed and the narrator surmises that their relationship ended because of a dirth of conversation and a lack of locations. Where some lesbians hesitate to hold hands this tape places sexuality in the public domain. Against a backdrop of tourist attractions their passion ruled.
