Trailer: “St. Lucy [To Look Upon Men with Lust], 2017, 1:35 min


Saint Lucy [To Look Upon Men with Lust] restages the biography of the Christian martyr St. Lucy, who sacrifices her eyesight [and with it her ability to derive sexual pleasure visually] in exchange for a life dedicated to God. Her lifestory is reenacted in a repeated theatrical choreography/sequence by two actors. The roles of Lucy, her mother, the Roman Emperor etc, are continually swapped and playfully interchanged. The layering of the repeated scenes filmed with two HD cameras, conjures several conflicting perspectives and temporal dimensions, blending contemporary and historical time.
