SEPTEMBER 27 AT 9PM
Greg Lundgren - Seattle, WA - 82 min
One webcam, one woman, one take: Chat turns the male gaze on its head (and knees it in the balls for good measure) in this dark comedy shot in a day.
One lackadaisical day, a woman sits down in front of her computer to make the rent by titillating a chat room full of anonymous men (we assume). Our camgirl protagonist racks up the dollars by peeling off layers of clothing, but her anonymous customers reveal much more of themselves through the things they say and the questions they ask of her. Without hesitation, she waves away the gross and gratuitous comments, engaging only when there's something at stake to be discussed, like the feminist dimension of her work ("I'm my own pimp, right, so that's feminist"). Juggling, atrocious violin playing, a pervy landlord and a pervier cop all make appearances on screen, as the audience merges with the POV of the chat room.
