I see a woman say it’s fantastic when she lets go of control. I see the sea, and the children on the rocks. In the rabbit forest the wolf child howls, they run after her. I see big rough hands in the soil.

Director's Statement Desire and the ways in which it comes to expression fascinate but also terrify me. In the film, a woman – a mother – talks about giving up control while in a staged role-play with a lover. She is in control when she allows him to dominate her. They give, they receive, their needs match, and desire is unleashed. The concept for the film is inspired by a type of irrationality that is characteristic of desire. The camera is the main character; I call her Marilyn. She is impulsive and a bit impatient. When she looks at something, she is inspired and begins mixing reality with her own fantasies.
