Sworded Love

Directed by Tina Takemoto

  • 5 mins

Painstaking scraping and nail polish transform a wuxia fight from an abandoned reel of celluloid into fleeting homoerotic desire, making the desire hotter and the violence even more visceral.

Plays in


Take a break from Normal with a slate of unusual shorts that play, scratch, and explode what takes place in the frame. Ground beef insurrections, nail polish on celluloid, internet imaginations, and whipsmart women throw down creative subversions.
