Gabey and Mike: A Jewish Summer Camp Love Story (2016)

Video, 21 mins.
Collaboration with Stephanie Markowitz

  ‘Gabey & Mike’ is a musical documentary inspired by the music of Mermaid Café (1989-1990), a folk rock band made up of Andi D, Joe A. Rider and Merrill Nisker (currently known as ‘Peaches’). The video blends a narrative of the two characters from the band’s iconic song ‘Gabey and Mike’ with documentary and archival footage to explore emerging sexuality in the space of the Jewish summer camp - a location which is central to the Mermaid Café story.    Made with the generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts.    Video Still, courtesy of  Ava Berkofsky , DP.
