Patey explores the common voyeur fantasy on an entirely new and sensory level. Based on the confession of an erotic filmmaker, this abstract short peers through the eyes, or the lens, of the filmmaker herself, creating a dialogue that transcends the space between performers and crew. Using a class wall, couple Dinah and Jan battle their lust for one another, unable to touch.

As the glass wall is removed and the couple are finally close enough to smell and feel each other, Dinah and Jan can explore, but still mustn’t touch. As they become visibly aroused and begin to tremble, the tension increases as if you were there with them. We cut between the real and the fictional, diving into Dinah’s inner most thoughts and sharing her desires, as she imagines an intense and powerful sex scene. “You can fantasize about each other.
