WINNER OF THE BEST UPCOMING DIRECTOR AT THE WORLD FILM FESTIVAL, 2011
CAMP is a 3-part, single channel, experimental, video essay exploring the secrets that underscore Jewish history and culture. Through a look at 3 camp environments, CAMP engages a queer re-telling of the traditional Purim story, the censored passages in Anne Frank's diary, and a haircut given by a grandfather in order to reveal the ways in which these secrets haunt the surface of our cultural moments. CAMP is framed through a play on the word ‘camp’ utilizing a camp sensibility amidst an analysis of temporary built environments.
