Everything That I’m Not is an experimental documentary centred on three Butch/Femme and Stud/Fem lesbian couples. It has been met with wide acclaim at the Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Festival, and Bristol Queer Visions Film Festival,
The viewer is invited to share intimate fragments of the couples’ lives, expressed through their domestic environment. By slowing down the process of perception, moments within an everyday setting provide a backdrop to stories that aim to capture the essence of the Butch/Femme and Stud/Fem dynamic.
The presence of the couples through their absence invites the viewer to engage with their desire to see, and the anxiety of not seeing the couples, while highlighting conflicting issues regarding the invisibility of Butch/Femme and Stud/Fem couples within the context of a broader society.
