The Book of Gabrielle (15*) + Live Drawing Show by Lisa Gornick


29 June 2017
Cinema 2
Gabrielle (Lisa Gornick) is writing an illustrated guide book on sex. Saul (Allan Corduner), an established writer, is fascinated. A sparring friendship between writers follows in this fresh, intellectual comedy about patriarchy and gender.

A live drawing show with projected image and amplified sound will introduce The Book of Gabrielle. Narrative cinema, lesbian cinema, sex on screen - making a film to express her concerns and intrigue with all of this, Lisa Gornick launches her inaugural cross platform experiment: live performance meets feature film meets actual book.
