Strange & Charmed

2003 | Bisexual / Black/African American / Relationships / Sexuality / Women's Studies | 16m | USA
Directors: Shari Frilot

With an explosion of intelligence and musical energy, Shari Frilot's remarkable Strange & Charmed offers a fresh, sophisticated, sci-fi story about the love lives of an eight-year old girl Lua, 20-year old lesbian Chakra, and 40-year old accountant Amanda; all through the point of view of two subatomic particles dancing through spacetime! The quarks Strange and Charmed fly through cosmic and microcosmic spaces which make up the universe and bodies of the three human characters as the women find and lose love over the course of one night on Earth. Finally, Strange and Charmed land in a dreamscape where Lua, Chakra, and Amanda are collapsed into one bolt of human lightening inside a quark field, flickering a zero point fluctuation!
