DYN AMO

UK, 1972 (MIFF 1973)

Director: Steve Dwoskin

Three strippers perform their routine in a sleazy London night club. A fourth comes on the stage, but her act is interrupted by the intervention of a group of men. Stephen Dwoskin, in his second feature film, probes the ritual of the striptease in terms of interaction between the performers and their spectators, and reveals before the camera the desperate vulnerability of his characters.

Dyn Amo is about women who are exploited, and about those who exploit them. What it reveals is that all are victims.
