"Strangerland" came from a fascination with the central theme of how we act out in times of crisis. About 22 years ago, my father faced a horrible drawn out battle with AIDS. Plus, there was a lot of stigma and bigotry attached to the disease, which was horrible to witness my dad endure and for me to experience secondhand as his child.

And from that very dark place I found myself wanting touch, wanting connection, wanting to fuck, to make love, anything but to feel the dark cloud of death shrouding my heart. And so I acted out sexually with a couple of strangers. I felt so at sea with all the loss, and sex gave me the illusion that I was back in control. But it was momentary and then the grief just flooded right back in -- only alongside it, came an onslaught of shame… even though I only slept with a couple of men in that time, I remember feeling so guilty about how I had acted out. I internalized it, but it festered away for a few more years until I met other people along the way who shared similar stories of sexualizing their grief. Eventually, I came to understand what I had done and the intrinsic link between sex and death. The primal need to feel alive in the face of loss and uncertainty. It's just something that mostly happens behind closed doors so people don't talk about it – that and because of all the repressed societal and religious taboos we in the Western world seem to have around sex. And so, from here came the idea to explore this behavior and how we act out in times of crisis on screen. So there is something innately intuitive about gaining touch to soothe painful emotions. Sometimes, young children are consistently told they are pretty or beautiful or handsome and so the child learns that their physicality gains them positive strokes and attention. And some children are molested and learn sex is love (or a distorted version of love) and this too can also lead to acting out sexually in order to gain acceptance and or to relieve pain. As well as healthy love making and joyous sex, people also sexualize stress, grief, loneliness, anger, longing, fear… we deal with crisis in many different ways… and sex is just one of them that we address in "Strangerland.
