Liberty Antonia Sadler ‘I Feel Femme’

Synopsis: A performative poetry film cycle 'I Feel Femme', explores male & female archetypes, such as the Madonna & Whore or The Hipster & Geek, using both humour & pathos to highlight themes of misogyny, fetish, vulnerability and control. The film features three poems: 'Domina', 'Baby Pink Bad Boy Blues' & 'Love Is A Slogan', each with their own Femme & Boi gender spectrum personas, confronting the camera with discussions of body, sexual & social politics:

DOMINA

Domina the Mistress. Domina the Queen. Domina knows what’s best for you. Domina owns you. Domina doesn’t need you. Domina is cum in human form. Domina is a sexual tyrant.

BABY PINK BAD BOY BLUES

“#masculinitysofragile #notallmen #friendszoned #niceguy”

Personas Andy and Gilbert exploring stereotypes of contemporary masculinity, including archetypical ‘Geek’ & ‘Hipster’ aesthetics. A satire on modern misogyny, examining the rise of ‘Meninists’ culture through Boi performativity and gendered space.

LOVE IS A SLOGAN

Fleur the Virgin. Fleur the vicious. Fleur is damaged innocence. Fleur is the submissive illusion, you don’t really control her. Fleur is dampened fire. Fleur is femme.
