FILM IST. a girl & a gun
Dir. Gustav Deutsch. 2009, 93 mins. 35mm. Deutsch was given special access to the archives of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction for his dazzling montage film which is comprised of five movements: Genesis, Paradise, Eros, Thanatos, and Symposium. “Cobwebbed cans of silent and early sound-era film are turned into gold by master archive hunter Gustav Deutsch… who emerges with a heady essay on eroticism and violence in cinema’s formative years.”—Richard Kuipers, Variety
