In the Ladies Lounge – Foufu, Melbourne, 12mins, Mini DV
In a Beirut lounge room in 1926, a photograph was taken of two Lebanese lesbians in drag. Now, this photograph hangs in a Sydney lounge room of two Lebanese lesbians. Some things have changed, some things haven’t.

3 Short Films By Wife And Aunties, 2004:
Fuck Me Hard – Performed by Wife, shot and edited by Foufu, 2 mins
Aunty in the Afternoon – Performed by Daro, Directed, edited and spoken by Foufu, Shot by Wife, 1.45sec
Terminology – Performed by Rihab, Directed, shot and edited by Foufu, 2.30sec

These 3 films were made at different times. Some times we like to be fucked. Some times we remember our aunties and the recipes they gave us. Some times we need to stand by our sisters and brothers in the Arab world. We are always Arab women, wherever we are, whatever we are doing.

Seamstress – Performed by Wife, Shot and edited by Foufu, 3mins, 2006, Mini DV
This piece was made by Wife and Foufu for the SLIT magazine ‘TOOLS’ exhibition in Sydney 2006. Synopsis: Sometimes we have to rip stuff up to feel better.

Jean & Jane – Janine Sack in co-operation with Henner Winckler, Hamburg, 3 min 30 sec,16 mm, 1997
A woman and a man get ready to go out. As they perform the various activities of dressing, shaving or putting on make-up they become more and more images of gender stereotypes. Link to Janine’s website.

Darling Nikki – Barabara Naegelin (with thanks to Prince), Switzerland, 2 mins, VHS, 2001

A home video with a minimal setting: a chair, changing androgynous clothes, and a cd-player. Imitating a music star and singing along to the pop song playing on the cd-player. A very intimate performance slightly accelerated and self-ironic. This video was made for an exhibition themed “Eros”.
more info about barbara naegelin on Les Reines Prochaines website

A fásli a zokni és a szőr (Bandage, socks and facial hair) – Dudás Dorottya (DeDe), Muszter, Horváth Nóra (Noar), Takács Mária (Mari), Hungary, 35mins, 2006 (English subtitles)
It’s the end of the Jedi age, the Empire rules the Galaxy with an iron fist. The spirit of revolt is not dead yet though. The most daring get bandage, socks and facial hair. A group of female revolutionaries depolarize the male-female order of the Galaxy for a day. They strike back as dragkings.

Bonus features plucked from the bildwechsel archives in hamburg and other international picks.
