August 25, 2014

A fragile girl fully aware of the beauty of carnal cravings treads the world of psychological uncertainty which will eventually victimize her… Perhaps she is not only on a quest for love or even pleasure, but on a mission to examine the boundaries of self, surrendering to the destructive forces of chemical and mental intoxication. She is lost in the hypnotic yearning of the fire raging inside of her and tormented by past memories, buried under layers and layers of repression. Nevertheless, she searches for the course which will lead her to possibility of expressing her freedom…

The Other Side of Desire…

…is reflected in necessity. Who is to say that our strong and passionate incentive toward an object of our desire has to be considered a social or even psychological pathology? If there is only one other human being who can share this urge for exaggeration with us, why would self-destructive impulses be considered addictive? And if they are, and if the addiction transpires into something more, if the exaggeration becomes overwhelming, who is to say we shouldn’t succumb to it?

Promiscuities Come to Life

Amy Hood and Jonathan Leder have created an intriguing moving pictures art piece. After the daring exploration conveyed in Fetishisms Manifesto, the lovers have decided to collaborate on an art expression which will lead the viewer to the corners of the mind shaded by psychological uncertainty and charged with sadomasochistic imagery… Inspired by artists such as Gustav Klimt, Ingmar Bergman and Vladimir Nabokov, Amy Hood says that the other film by Leder, American Ecstasy, took her on a journey of discovering the non-traditional narrative structures of filmmaking. Now, with the release of Promiscuities, Hood and Leder are questioning the psychological integrity of a young woman submerged in the haze of prescription pills which is wearing out. Diane, character portrayed by Amy Hood, is looking for affection and love in the midst of an eruption of fear, anger, delusion and extreme self-consciousness. Her quest is transformed when a figure who promises a cure emerges – a psychotherapist with an atypical method. The film is available for stream or download directly from the creators, at www.promiscuities-movie.com
