Antony Hegarty's Turning

Antony Hegarty, from Antony and the Johnsons fame and filmmaker Charles Atlas have filmed a new, somewhat unconventional documentary. The Advocate wrote a short review of the film:

From The Advocate:
Hegarty joined forces with Charles Atlas, the filmmaker behind The Legend of Leigh Bowery, to make Turning, a stage show that featured Hegarty singing, while various women, many androgynous and transgender, like Hegarty himself, climbed on stage. The women stood on moving platforms as video cameras, guided by Atlas, captured close-ups of their faces and projected them on giant screens. Hegarty describes it as a “hypnotic journey through this panorama of different meditations on feminine presence.”
