Her Sweetness Lingers

Shani Mootoo

1994, 12:00 minutes, colour


A video poem about one woman's longing and desire for another whom she is shy to approach. The use of multiple layering of images, intense colour saturation, close-ups and a lush nature setting with flowering plants and insects create a tactile and sensuous visual poem.
