Sex, Lies & Audiotape
Bowery Film Festival is proud to screen the following selections:
A Little SisterDirected by Julie Deffet
In Trump's America, a young woman meets her father, brother and their friends in a bar to celebrate her birthday. Among these four familiar men, she struggles to find her place.
Be My RebelDirected by Virgil Widrich
Children dream of what they will be as adults and adults dream about their childhood. But sometimes, when orderly life becomes paralyzed in routine, adults need the inner child to bring about change: 'Be my rebel', the first collaboration of the two music legends Nena and Dave Stewart, premiered at Nenas 40th anniversary on stage. The accompanying video by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Virgil Widrich transfers the story into a dreamlike, glass mirror world that is powered by Dave Stewart at the controls of his classic modular synthesizers. At the typewriter: Nena as an annoyed bookkeeper, who threatens to disappear soon with her flower dress in her flower wallpaper. But the inner dialogue works in both directions and soon takes effect: rebellion changes the past – and thus also the future.
