Here You Will Find It

USA, 1983 (MIFF 1984)

Director: Lee Sokol

A film about male sexuality made by a woman with similar concerns and an equally individual "vision" as Bette Gordon's. Lee Sokol was on her way to San Luis Potosi one summer to film the bullfights. In the middle of the desert she came across a dilapidated house surrounded by car parts, etc. In black letters on one of the turquoise walls was a sign: "Acqui se lo halla", here you will find it.

On the sound track a 40-year-old Mexican tells of his faith in an obsession with love, and his problems with the male role in a macho society. The film uses optically printed material to show the bullfights and conjuror's tricks, in which colour plays an important role. "The phallus can only play its role as veiled, that is, as in itself the sign of the latency with which everything signifiable is struck as soon as it is raised to the function of the signifier"—Jacques Lacan.
