M.A.S. (Missing At Sea)

David Coffey

1997, 26:17 minutes, colour/B&W, English


Through the use of spoken word, two distinct stories that begin in two different times and places move toward the same event where a sailor is murdered at sea. One story follows another man's quest to win over the affections of a fellow sailor. As a whole, the video tells the story of the sometimes turbulent relationship between masculine and feminine bodies.
