Steve Dwoskin: 'Let's say the film is an intoxication of freedom and a strategy for my illness. Being ill is like entering into a new and uncharted relationship and, to deal with this new relationship, it becomes necessary to possess it and to make it one's own. One must reclaim oneself out of the anonymity caused by illness by using the language one knows best - turning the illness into a personal narrative, a poetic landscape or a subjective metaphor. In a sense, the film is a way to demystify or deconstruct the impersonal toxicity of illness by the personal intoxication of one's sexuality. Therefore the film, produced like a painting, forms a personal and poetic navigation between the extremes of illness and sexuality - from the subjectivity of pain to the subjectivity of pleasure.'
