A Vegas showgirl wanders into the desert while performing her routine. The harsh conditions force her to acknowledge her own physical needs, and she transforms from a beautiful object into a living being with thoughts, desires, and a point of view. Yet this is a dangerous freedom, as the viewer turns voyeur and ultimately predator.
'The Imagemaker' engages the relationship of the viewer to the viewed as the artist is both director and performer. Shot entirely alone in the desert, the film explores the hazards of self-consciousness and self-liberation.
