Chichenitz Ah

Byron Ayanoglu

1987, 16:00 minutes, colour, English


It is a tough time for gays and lesbians. There seems to be a spell on these minorities, an evil spell, despite which life must go on. This tape, tells a straight forward story (which in reality is an allegory) about two lesbians and their attempt to cure themselves of the "spell". They are aided by a gay man (which allows for comments on the ongoing rivalry between gays and lesbians), and they find their salvation in the hands of a benevolent dancer/witch in Mexico.
