Two women occupy one space. Without showing their faces, the camera lingers on their bodies in images that capture both from an extreme high angle. The camera, set at ground level, distorts the female body, even creating a grotesque effect. A voice repeatedly calls for a woman: “Lisa... come here... don’t be afraid... that it... I won’t hurt you.” This film is a stunning piece of video art which explores the gaze on the female body, and the desires and violence overwhelming it as well. (Nam In-young)
