About the work: Tessa Hughes-Freeland, is a filmmaker, curator and writer. Her films have been screened internationally, and she is best known for her significant contribution to the Cinema of Transgression movement. “Nymphomania” (1993) is an experimental narrative short that was a collaboration with Holly Adams. The film features a graceful and gentle nymph dancing in a meadow to Claude Debussy’s “Afternoon of the Faun,” who is then attacked and raped by the over sexualized satyr. Both brutal and humorous, the film explores the sexual stereotypes of female passiveness versus male aggression.
