heteronom 1

(Film, 7 min.)

Still, (c) Sabine Sonnenschein

My mouth is spoken. You are my pleasure and my text, I desire you. You are s/he that constitutes my self in a basic way. I am heteronomous, determined by the Other.

This philosophical and pornographic film poses the question of the Other as a basal subject condition and of heteronomy in sexuality. Visible are mouth and vagina as sites of desire and speaking.

The heteronomous relationship present in the pictures is one between the body in the image and the viewers.
At the beginning and at the end of the film the text is structured as dialogue, speaks as "you" but also addresses the viewer, is driven by homosexual and heterosexual desire, and at times uses the third person.
