Glimpse 23 VOD Part 1

Created under the strictures of confinement in a stressed-out Paris,
Roy Stuart presents the 23rd installment of his iconic Glimpse series.
Undeterred by the lockdown blues, he creatively channels the current
zeitgeist to address contemporary issues of sexuality and solve
In the film’s first sequence, the veil is lifted to reveal
the challenging sexual dynamics in the era of social distancing. Two
young girls reutrning home meet a stranger who is lost and whose phone
is dead. They invite him up to charge his phone and a definite
attraction develops between him and one of the girls. But how to
materialize this desire into an organic situation, solving the sexual
frustrations of the masked couple sitting alone on the girl’s bed and
staring at into each other’s expectant eyes…

From this starting
point, Roy leads us on an arousing journey, both sensually and
aesthetically, penetrating to the core of contemporary sexual attitudes
and revealing to us a vision of sexuality that is neither objectifying
nor sterile.
Glimpse is the alternative, The Third Way; here we are in the realm of contemporary art. To quote Angela Carter:

is a liberal theory that art disinfects eroticism of its latent
subversiveness, and pornography that is also art loses its shock and its
magnetism, becomes ‘safe’… Out of this dilemma, the moral
pornographer might be born… an artist who uses pornographic material
as part of the acceptance of the logic of a world of absolute sexual
licence for all the genders, and projects a model of the way such a
world might work.”

As in his previous films, Roy Stuart
continues his pioneering work as the “moral pornographer” to help us
discover a representation of sexuality beyond good and evil.

it’s nearly two hours running time, Glimpse 23 is composed of 15
different scenes many of which feature never before seen models, woven
together by Stuart’s unique and avant-garde style. The film also
features, as always, enchanting original music by Stuart himself as well
as a poetic contribution by Franz Wright.

So enter once
again the Glimpse universe where the false promises of consumerism and
industrial porn are shed away with a reality in which fantasy and
sensuality are the ruling principles.
