IS THERE A CURE FOR MY FRIEND
In 1987 my best friend found out she was HIV. We'd known each other since we were 3, and I couldn’t face thinking of the future without her. We decided to make a film together, and make it much the way we did as children, calling our production company, "Two Girls Lost In the Forest." Our images came from games we played as children such as doing “the bicycle” with each other, or pretending to "run away" from home. This time, we were searching for a cure for her life-threatening disease. An androgynous shaman sends us on a journey through the four elements: first water, then air, fire, and finally, earth. I bury my best friend. The process of making the film was as important to us as the film itself; it brought us closer.
