Ruth Selwyn: Lizika Lezbijka

Animation Film
Ruth Selwyn  

Lizzy is a »foxy« lesbian who crushes all lesbian stereotypes; she speaks her mind and directly readdresses lesbian sexuality. Through her frank declaration about the still tabooed lesbian world, the character of Lizzy – who remains almost expressionless save for the exception of eye, mouth and hand movement – is most ef fective. Visually simple, yes; but message-wise it is accomplished, with lots of humour, irony, plays on words and - in par ticular - acuity. These animated s t and-up comedy shor ts by the British director Ruth Selwyn are introduced at the Cit y of Women in collaboration with DokMa, the documentar y film festival held in Maribor, Slovenia’s second cit y. This year, a special section of the main programme will be dedicated to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual document aries.
