This videotape examines my (and my collaborator’s) relationship (as butch women) to purses. Forms and tropes from contemporary popular horror films and experimental/Surrealist films from the 20s are utilized to explore the psycho-sexual dimensions of our experience and playfully presents purses as a ‘threat’ to masculinity (even female masculinity).
