BALĀDE PAR GENESIS UN LADY JAYE
/ The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye /
Režija: Marī Losjē
Francija, Amerika
2011, 72 min
Filma tiks izrādīta ar subtitriem angļu valodā

Dokumentālā filma attēlo mākslinieku un dzīvesbiedru Genesis Breyer P-Orridge un Lady Jaye transformāciju projekta “Pandrogyne” ietvaros.

2000. gadā mākslinieks Genesis Breyer P-Orridge uzsāka savu līdz šim skandalozāko projektu – pakļaujot sevi neskaitāmām plastiskās ķirurģijas operācijām, viņš lēnām pārvērta sevi par Lady Jaye, viņa māksliniecisko partneri un mūža mīlestību. Procesā, kurā viņš kļūst par viņu, Genesis piedzīvo traģisku savas partneres nāvi.

“Šīs filmas pabeigšana Genesis deva iespēju godināt viņu kopīgo, mīlestības pilno dzīvi ar Jaye. Filma ir kā cerības un solidaritātes zīme visiem māksliniekiem un visiem cilvēkiem, kuri mīl, neatkarīgi no mākslas žanra vai seksuālās orientācijas.” – tā filmas režisore Marī Losjē.

THE BALLAD OF GENESIS AND LADY JAYE
Director: Marie Losier
France, USA
2011, 72 min
With ENG subtitles

A documentary on artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and his wife and collaborator, Lady Jaye, centered around the transformations the pair underwent for their Pandrogyne project.

Celebrated as one of the founders of industrial music, Genesis P-Orridge has helped transform rock and electronic music, as he expands the horizon of the performing arts. In 2000, he began his most radical performance: by undergoing a series of plastic surgery operations, Genesis slowly transformed himself into Lady Jaye, his artistic partner and the love of his life. As he becomes her, through a triumphant act of artistic self-expression, Genesis is also forced to witness the death of his companion. “To Genesis, finishing the film was the best way to celebrate his love and his life with Jaye; it is a message of hope and solidarity for all artists and all those who love, regardless of genre or sexual orientation. Since I was given the privilege of witnessing first-hand the many years of their shared professional and personal life, I was able to gather material which goes beyond that of many fiction films but whose message is in essence rooted in the most human and basic of desires: the confirmation of love.”
