Performing gender and reframing the fictional/ factual film debate, Lady is an intriguing blend of 70s-style mockumentary and confessional melodrama. Is the Lady of the title a woman playing a man playing a woman, or more specifically, a lesbian playing a gay man play­ing a heterosexual woman? This intended ambiguity invites the audience to question the very parameters of sexuality, desire and notions of femininity. Camp? Queer? Con­fronting? Or simply confusing the issues? Decide for yourself.
