My aim with this film is to raise awareness of body dysmorphia as a mental health issue and facilitate dialogue. I want to explore mental health and its expression through the bio drag art form,
challenging audiences by dealing with a difficult subject matter through the subjects use of fetishistic and pornographic symbolism. This film offers the audience an opportunity to explore the
bizarre and beautiful world of the film’s subject through a prism of mirrors and laser lights.
