Punto de Vista will premiere in Spain the awaited release of the documentary The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye, a film on Genesis P-Orridge. British musician and writer, P-Orridge has been a key figure in alternative music for over 30 years. Cult artist in pre-punk era with the band Throbbing Gristle (1975 to 1981) and the post-punk period with Psychic TV, he is also regarded as the father of industrial music and a pioneer of acid house and techno. Not content with breaking the boundaries in the music field, throughout his life Genesis has been moving towards the limits of what is socially acceptable in order to change his own biology. Transformation is, indeed, central to his life. He became a she to resemble his beloved Lady Jaye, now deceased. With peroxide hair, full lips and gold teeth, Genesis does not go unnoticed. A unique life, modeled on his other, Lady Jaye, who remains an integral part of himself. Without subscribing to any movement but living life as the ultimate experiment, he has made his body a work of art.
Also, and always within The Central Region, PdV will premiere two movies called to lead the way in the documentary genre. Thus, the (also) musician Thomas Comerford’s The Indian Boundary Line, is a story about the 12 miles of Rogers Street Avenue in Chicago, which less than 200 years was the border between the United States and the Indian tribes back then in the area. The film examines the dichotomy between a more or less nondescript urban landscape, with its shops, short-cut footpaths, golf courses and picnic tables; and its little-known symboli story. The other film, Mikel Zatarain’s first short, the beautiful Lanbroa, is also a reflection on the landscape, the changes to come, and what we can see and what is hidden to us.
