TRUE LOVE

„Half of it is the static self-operated camera of the video diary of an HIV+ friend of mine in Lesotho and the other a fiction in Paris. Moalusi Thabane is a close friend of mine and this shows in the intimate, powerful images he sends me. Love in Lesotho becomes more of a physical experience while the love in Paris (inspired by the 1960s dialogue of Jean-Luc Godard’s films) turns in circles. As the story unfolds, somehow the two subjects, which could not have been more in contrast, find a common thread.“ (T. Edkins)
