Ne dites pas à ma mère
Regard d'une strip-teaseuse
Sarah Moon Howe
2003 - 27 min - Super 8 mm & Mini DV - Couleur et Noir & Blanc - Belgique

I have been doing strip tease since I was 22 years old. I needed to feel my body and my limits. I wanted to see and be seen. I wanted to explore my feminity through the gaze of others. I wanted to burn my wings, feel fear and at the end of each night, come out of it alive.
All during these years, I filmed in black and white super 8 what I was discovering in this underground world : the women, at once fragile and strong, the spectators, the bar owners, the friendship between girls, how hard it is to quit the business and the desperate desire to feel that you exist.
