Director: Erika Lust
Performers: Sicilia & Sean, Sicilia, Sean
From the XConfessions series: How obsession with an ex-lover can torment the brain with erotic fantasies…
A haunting and beautiful vignette, this piece was inspired by the confession of a man who would give anything to have his lover back again.
Hey Melancholia, I feel your pain. Nearly everyone has a lost love from one time or another, and knows the feeling that you can’t get that person out of your head. I’ve taken your Obsessed fantasy and turned it into a reality by shooting it here in Barcelona this winter, and I think you will love it. We used a big projector for the home videos you talked about, and it gives the whole film a dreamy feeling. Real life performing couple Sean and Sicilia play your star-crossed lovers.
