SYNOPSIS

Screens with Decasia 2002.

Peggy Ahwesh is one of the leading figures of experimental film and video in the United States. A true bricoleur, her work combines narrative and documentary styles, improvised performance and scripted dialogue, synch-sound film, found footage, digital animation, and crude Pixelvision video. In The Colour of Love Ahwesh subjects a pornographic film to intense colouring, optical printing and general fragmentation; the source material threatens to virtually collapse under the beautiful violence of her filmic treatment. What emerges is a portrait at once nostalgic and horrible: the degraded image, locked in symbiotic relation with an image of degradation.
