“Although very explicit, these scenes avoid being either coy or pornographic. They are firmly embedded in the physical, but the women”s bodies are neither glamorized nor mocked. Instead, the rhythms of desire flow freely (and are not confined by clichés of acted-out phony sexual climaxes) and the camera itself seems to caress the flesh before it.” Tom Gunning
MYSTERY’S CHOIR- 1999 (re-released 2009)
Mystery’s Choir is an experimental-narrative art film that explores the surreal, honest and truncated perceptions of a teenager, Daena (Deidra Currie) lost in love with a much older lesbian woman, Chelsea (Jill Repplinger). The couple’s reclusive sexually charged relationship snaps 15-year-old, Daena out of her magical world and has her sleep walking through dreams and waking reality.
Mystery’s Choir contains unsimulated lesbian sex and stylistically mixes conventional narrative storytelling with abstract dreamscape imagery.

“It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before” Joan Jett
“Digs deep into lesbo-erotic depths and emerges with reels of pristine dirt that will tickle those who are jaded while liberating others who are repressed”
