Cinema Of Desire

by Peter Mantello
Cinema Of Desire is an upbeat, quirky portrait of Tuck, a transgendered sex worker who services her clients daily in an old run down cinema in Bangkok’s working class neighborhood. The film is an intimate, poignant and often times funny glimpse at the ordinary life of an astonishingly extra-ordinary person. The cinema becomes a site where the erotic fantasies of the screen start to blur with the physical ecstasy in the viewing seat. –LM, San Francisco Sex Worker Film Festival (2009-30 min.)
