The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye

I saw Marie Losier's film 'The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye' earlier this year at Hot Docs, actually I think it was the last film I saw at Hot Docs. Either way it was totally beautiful and a great way to end the festival, Losier manages to make her film in enough of an off-kilter way to be interesting without being emotional void and alienating - which is harder than it sounds. In fact that careful emotional line it treads is the best part of  the film, which is all the way affecting and moving, without being too heavy.

Its screening at ACMI this week with a Q and A from THE Genesis P-Orridge doing a Q and A - couldn't be more jealous!
