Description

After the death of her husband, lifelong artist Pamela Joseph was left creatively frozen, searching for meaning and struggling to find her identity. Seven years later, an explosion of ideas culminated in a fantastical exhibition inspired by 20th-century freak shows. SIDESHOW OF THE ABSURD is a cinematic exploration of this work, where women are provocatively presented as multi-faceted curiosity: idolized mother/lover, vilified sexual predator/prey, and giver/recipient of pleasure and pain.
