Bullets for Breakfast

Synopsis
Images from MY DARLING CLEMENTINE form the basis for thought-provoking interpretation in Fisher’s experimental film. Combining stunning optical printing with a dense weaving of poetry, storytelling, and visual narrative, Fisher’s film explores the violent underside of another frontier: gender relations. Juxtaposing a pulp-western writer with a feminist poet, or women working at a herring smokehouse with those depicted in paintings by European Masters, Fisher reorders stories and images like musical motifs. A captivating hybrid of experimental and documentary technique, the film mines the depths of subjectivity, blurring the lines between myth and reality, fact and fiction.
