Encounters I May or May Not Have Had with Peter Berlin

(Mariah Garnett, 2012, 14 min)

Provocatively mixing fact and fiction in her voiceover, Mariah Garnett’s potent tribute segues from her drag play as 1970s gay sex icon Peter Berlin to beautiful footage that she and Berlin shot – with the same type of camera he used four decades ago – during their tender conversation inside his eclectically decorated home.
