terrible things we do - looks at power and surrender dynamics between two fighting bodies. The conflict looks violent, sexual, hopeless and never ending. Bodies wrestle into frame and out of frame as if there is an eternal struggle only to momentarily stop to acknowledge the camera’s intrusion or to reset the “eternal struggle.”
