René, René, Qu'est-ce-que c'est? (The Fatboy Chronicles, Part One)

René Broussard

1995, 24:00 minutes, colour


The victims of childhood sexual abuse often grow up to become the abusers. This psychological construct and the recent tabloid climate where everyone seems to be asserting their status as "the victim" is the underlying theme of this "comedy about being molested". But since I was the one who was "molested", why shouldn't I be able to make the experience now pay for me as an artist? Video therapy is a way to make all the crap I endured growing up fat and gay and catholic as a child, finally bearable. Plus, "It really makes me hot looking at and editing all these images ... so I guess I need a little more help than I think!"
