Flat Is Beautiful is an experimental live-action cartoon using masks, animation, subtitles, drawings, and dramatic scenes to investigate the psychic life of an androgynous eleven-year-old girl. Growing up in a working class neighborhood with her single mother and gay roommate, Taylor confronts the loneliness of living between masculine and feminine in a culture obsessed with defining gender difference.

  • Sadie BenningSadie Benning

    Born in 1973 in Wisconsin. Sadie Benning is a lesbian video artist who has created provocative work since she was 15 years old using a Pixelvision toy camera. Many of her video pieces are coming of age stories about her own experiences and longings as a young lesbian teenager. Evoking in turn playful seduction and painful honesty, Benning’s floating, close-up camera functions as her intimate revelations and definition of evocative experimental form. Her filmography includes Me & Rubyfruit (1989), Living Inside (1989), Jollies (1990), A Place Called Lovely (1991), It Wasn’t Love (1992), German Song (1995) and For Baby (2000).
