Documentary
Now it can be told. When avant-garde performer Genesis P-Orridge met and married fellow A.G.P. Lady Jaye in 1995, they embarked on a series of body modification surgeries designed to make them more closely resemble each other. The concept succeeded, more or less, but the narrative behind this eye-opening documentary profile of the happy couple is more about their uncanny devotion to each other. Filmmaker Marie Losier, a frequent collaborator of the Kuchar Bros., fills us in on the back stories of both Genesis (born Neil Andrew Megson, he suffered the proverbial bad experience at English public school) and the former Jacqueline Breyer (one-time NYC dominatrix), who went on to live the archetypal androgynous artist/musician lifestyle together. Instead of having children, they decided to “make ourselves the new person.” Losier’s doc is almost as obsessive as its subjects. Contains choice concert footage from their individual and combined careers. (72 min.)
Director: Marie Losier
Producer: Steve Holmgren and Marie Losier
