‘Unsex Me’ by Emilie Badenhorst. Following a group of friends to underground sex party Death of Glitter, Badenhorst explores themes of sexual liberation and captures the raw energy of the night.
“It’s a raw and sensual look at youth culture in South Africa.”
‘Unsex Me’ is an uncensored narrative which immerses viewers in the twists and turns of the night and exploring a wide range of sexual liberation themes. Emilie sensitively captures the split-seconds between thought and conversation. Raw energy radiates through her lens as the night begins to escalate. An alternative and sometimes contradictory view is created by Farai, one of the friends who is given a handycam to document his own perspective up close.
“If your entire intention is to reveal what is real right now, for some of the youth of Cape Town, how do you do that truthfully?” – Emilie Badenhorst
