Directed by Ira Sachs
28 mins

An early film by lauded director Ira Sachs (Little Men, Love Is Strange, Keep the Lights On), Lady is written and performed by Dominique Dibbell (of the Five Lesbian Brothers), and embraces the finest in gender confusion.

The exact identity of Lady's redheaded protagonist is hard to pin down. The juxtaposition of various cinematic styles in the film, from quasi-1970s variety to home movies to a more distanced black and white, adds to the sense of a character continually redefining herself. This purposeful ambiguity—who is the lady in the red wig?—invites the audience to question the blurred parameters of sexuality, desire, and what it means to be a woman.
