Constantine Giannaris Τribute

Jean Genet is Dead / Constantine Giannaris

A collage of images, a metaphor for love in the time of AIDS, a personal reading of Jean Genet’s influence on gay culture and queer aesthetics. Put together like a palimpsest of images and sounds, the film brings Genet’s words to the foreground and translates them into shots that do not merely illustrate his work but breathe it, resuscitating us with an erotic mouth-to-mouth.
