Today's pick for the Sydney Film Festival Trailer of the Day is BLACK & WHITE & SEX. Here's what the SFF Program says about the film:
Australian producer John Winter (Rabbit-Proof Fence, Doing Time for Patsy Cline) makes his directorial debut with a conceptually daring work that adopts a film-within-a-film structure. Angie (played alternately by Katherine Hicks, Anya Beyersdorf, Valerie Bader, Roxane Wilson, Michelle Vergara Moore, Dina Panozzo, Saskia Burmeister and Maia Thomas) is a sex worker being interviewed by a director (Matthew Holmes) who is making a film about sex. Determined to set the record straight about love, seduction and power, Angie's interview is erotic, funny and confronting. Her intellectual striptease and no-holes-barred approach to talking about sex ultimately turns the tables, exposes the interviewer and positions him as an unwilling subject. Nicola Daley's luscious black-and-white cinematography evokes the grand Hollywood 'casting-couch' era and Andy Warhol's Screen Tests; Adrian Rostirolla's editing slips provocatively and seamlessly between the knockout performances from the eight Angies; and Winter's sharply intelligent script tackles the most mysterious and everyday subject head-on.
